The Musical Adventures of an Irishman in Andalusia
Paddy Anderson is one of the very few professional flamenco guitarists in Ireland and the UK. In this brand new show, he invites us to experience the full range of colours and emotions of the solo flamenco guitar.

Stunning original compositions and classic pieces from the repertoire by flamenco guitar masters like Paco de Lucía and Sabicas combine beautifully with surprising and funny stories from Paddy's experiences of living in Spain and learning flamenco.

THIS IS ME
Paddy Anderson is one of the very few full time professional flamenco guitarists in Ireland and the UK. He is well known in his native Ireland for his solo work and his role in Latin music duo Los Dramáticos.
Paddy has been inspired by his experiences living in Spain. A love of flamenco music and Spanish language and culture in general brought Paddy to Granada, Andalucía in 2001, where he lived for several years immersing himself in the world of flamenco and flamenco guitar. This sparked an artistic journey which continues.
Paddy shares his time between Ireland and Andalucia deepening his practice through performance, collaboration, teaching and recording.
