Arizona based company, Jácome Flamenco, is thrilled to present, Tres Guitarras. This all guitar concert features Jácome Flamenco’s artistic director, flamenco guitarist Chris Jácome alongside blues guitarist Bob Fahey of South Dakota, and jazz guitarist Stan Sorenson of Tempe.
Tres Guitarras debuts at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 21 at Chandler Center for the Arts, 250 N. Arizona Ave. This concert is part of a free summer concert series for the community and is a perfect evening for the entire family to share.
“Tres Guitarras is an extraordinary guitar experience. We’ll take a journey into our artistic journeys as guitarists and musicians,” Jácome said. “You’ll hear some phenomenal music and witness some guitar acrobatics. But really, this concert is about a great night for the family to enjoy together. With just 6 strings, the guitar can become its own orchestra. You get to hear soulful blues, hip jazz riffs and exciting flamenco strums, then hear it all fused together. This show is a celebration of the guitar and it’s going to be an unforgettable concert.”
Chris Jácome studied flamenco guitar with some of the greatest flamenco performers of this era while living in Sevilla, Spain. Inspired to share his passion for this incredible art form, Jácome created Jácome Flamenco in 2003, and has since become an internationally acclaimed touring company. The company has performed to many sold-out theatres and has performed throughout the US, as well as in Spain, Canada, Mexico and Indonesia, including recent engagements at Jazz at Lincoln Center and New York City Center in January, 2015.
