Informal flamenco show, 20 October

Come along to an informal flamenco show with improvised performances by Antonio Heredia and Francesca Girone! They will be joined by invited students who have participated in the day’s workshops in Manchester. There will also be some sevillanas and fin de fiesta for anybody who would like to join in with a professional singer. Guitar accompaniment from Nick Wilkinson, Paul Gibson, Simon Blackmore and Lawrence Saddoo.

Antonio has been singing professionally since he was 14 years old. He has sung for world class dancers including Belén López, Antonio Canales, El Carpeta, El Torombo and El Choro, featuring in some of Spain’s leading flamenco festivals. He works in the popular tablaos and peñas in his native Granada between these events.

Francesca is a dancer and events organiser based in Mojacar – Almeria. She has worked with Sarah and other Manchester flamenco enthusiasts to bring two of her professional shows to Manchester, performing as well as coordinating. Both Antonio and Francesca are bringing the traditional flamenco ‘puro’, Antonio having been born into a respected gypsy flamenco family and Francesca having studied and performed with gitanos for many years in Andalucia.

Admission is £8 advance and £10 on the door and includes a drink
