Legends Festival: Alec Dankworth's Spanish Accents


UCB McIntyre House

Alec Dankworth's long-standing love of all things Spanish provided the inspiration for this group. Metheny, Corea, even Rodrigo are reinvented alongside traditional folk songs and originals in flamenco rhythms creating a wonderful and genuinely Spanish world. The band features the beautiful voice of daughter Emily Dankworth and the flamenco dancing and palmas of Jesus Olmedo, along with heady mix of top British musicians - saxophonist Mark Lockheart, Chris Garrick's gorgeous violin, and Alec Dankworth's bass interweaving with the genuinely Spanish drumwork of Demi Garcia and guitar of Phil Robson make this an unusual line-up.
