You know when you go to a show or concert and you think to yourself, “That was fabulous. Why don’t I do this more often?” Well, here’s an event worth attending, and your chance to enjoy one of those musical experiences that don’t come around all the time.
Internationally-renowned Flamenco Guitarist Ronald Radford will be in concert at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 10 at Gardner Auditorium in Russellville. He is the only individual to be awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to Spain in Flamenco guitar. A protégé of the legendary Carlos Montoya, Radford is widely acclaimed as one of the foremost Flamenco guitarist touring today.
Here’s how a flamenco reviewer from Alicante, Spain described Radford: “This is not just a musical performance but an ambience-driven, immersive, soul-stirring experience – a musical journey adorned with stories, tales, poetry and sounds and music transcending the stage. From the explosive opening to the emotional farewell, Radford’s concert program forms a coherent ride – a carefully crafted experience that is self-contained, yet fresh and deeply satisfying every time. This concert will take you on a journey to Spain and beyond.”
