I’m happy. I recently started a couple of new gigs that are very inspiring. Both are here in the frozen tundra we know as Minneapolis Minnesota. Home of Flamenco Fantasies, General Mills, Cargill, and Michelle Bachman.
Wednesday evenings I play at the Riverview Wine Bar (address is the corner of 38th street and 42nd Ave). It is a totally acoustic evening and I play 100% flamenco. Singers and guitarists stop in and the atmosphere is a little reminiscent of the peña at ArteBar in Madrid, that I so love. There is nice wine, craft beer, and tasty snacks.
Rincon 38 is a fairly recently opened tapas bar (38th and Grand Ave) that is cozy, warm, and delicious. I’m doing some Tuesdays and Thursdays—again, almost 100% flamenco. I’m grateful for the opportunities: flamenco’s mantle provides such a delightful alternative to the hum-drum.
