Moonah Arts Centre’s popular Friday Night Concert Series continues on Friday July 1 , with
“ An exploration of Spanish Music. ”
Hobart based Spanish guitarist, Paul Gerard, will be performing an intimate solo concert to promote the release of his new CD “In Search of Duende”.
‘Duende’ a Spanish word for ‘magic’, sees Paul capturing the essence of Spanish music as a place, rather than as an event, a performance that speaks straight to the soul – ‘Duende’.
“In Search of Duende” is Paul Gerard’s 6th Solo CD. It is an adventure into Spanish music covering rearrangements of Spanish classical music, Latin music as well as exploring the influences that make up flamenco.
Paul is finding the journey into Spanish guitar an exciting musical expression that covers a colorful spectrum. The versatility challenges both the musician as well as the instrument used, in this instance, a first class guitar made by the talented Tasmanian luthier, Daniel de Jonge.
The “In Search of Duende” concert series is a concept. Each live performance is an invitation for the audience to participate in the experience with the musician, the music, the ambiance of the location and the intimacy of the performance itself. Again, this synergy is ‘Duende’.
