North East Guitar Festival 2016

Manuel Valencia - Flamenco Guitar Quartet plus Guitar Duo Manzano-Garcia

Sage Two

Manuel Valencia, from Jerez de la Frontera is widely seen as the one of the greatest emerging talents of the Flamenco guitar. Tonight he makes his UK debut with his fantastic new quartet.

Manuel learned the guitar at a very young age from his uncle, Fernando Terremoto. A seminal moment in Manuel’s development came when he was asked by the great Gerardo Núñez to join his prestigious ensemble embarking on his first worldwide tour.

His sensational soloist debut at the 2010 Festival of Jerez paved the way for appearances at a host of prestigious festivals such as the Seville Biennial, the Festival de la Mistela, Mont de Marsan and Suma Flamenca soon making him one of the most sought after Flamenco players in the world. In 2014 he won the ‘Revelation Giraldillo’ of the Bienal de Sevilla “for his original contributions to traditional toque”.

For this concert Manuel will be joined by the great singer Felipa del Moreno, exciting young dancer Saray García and experienced percussionist Angel Sánchez ‘Cepillo’.
