I can still remember when Vicente made his USA debut here in our Nation’s capital fourteen years ago in February 2002. Of course I went backstage to meet him and to express my appreciation for his music which has been a huge inspiration for me as a lifetime student of the flamenco guitar.
Enough reminiscing, here’s the info you need to know. On Sunday March 6, 2016 at 8:00pm Vicente Amigo performs at Lincoln Theatre 1215 U St NW in Washington DC. Joining him:
- Antonio “Añil” Fernández, second guitar
- Francisco “Paquito” González, cajón
- Ewen Vernal, bass
- Rafael de Utrera, cante
- Antonio Molina “Choro,” special guest bailaor
