Flamenco guitar master Antonio Rey, winner of the 2020 Latin Grammy for Best Flamenco Album, live in Seattle!

Antonio Rey was born in Madrid to a family deep in flamenco tradition and his career began at the age of ten alongside his father, also a flamenco guitarist. He was soon performing on international stages and winning prestigious awards for his incredible virtuosity, such as the Premio Nacional de Guitarra (also won by Paco de Lucia and Vicente Amigo), National Competition of the Art of Flamenco of Córdoba, Niño Ricardo National Competition of Flamenco Guitar, International Flamenco Guitar Competition of Jerez and others. He has performed with many of the most important flamenco artists, such as the late great Paco de Lucia, Chick Corea, Grammy winning vocalist Diego El Cigala, dancer Joaquín Cortes, guitarist Diego del Morao, Grammy nominee Estrella Morente, and has recently been touring with bass legend Richard Bona. Rey has performed in prestigious concert halls around the world including Tokyo, Moscow, Tehran and across Latin America and Europe.
This concert is part of his US tour that celebrates the release of his new Grammy winning album, “Flamenco sin Fronteras”, a groundbreaking CD for flamenco guitar. Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of today’s top flamenco guitar virtuosos live in Seattle!
