RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Five-time Grammy Award-nominee and nouveau flamenco guitarist Ottmar Liebert will be returning to The Ridgefield Playhouse with his touring band, Luna Negra, for an evening of jazz at 8 p.m. Saturday.
Liebert is known for his engaging mix of subdued flamenco guitar with South American percussion, rock, jazz and pop influences. Liebert’s "La Semana" has become one of the best-selling guitar albums of all time.
Attendees can start the evening with wine tasting, courtesy of Palm Bay International, at 7:15 p.m. in the lobby. You also can enjoy a complimentary taco on the day of the show when your ticket is presented at Babaloo Cocina Ltina, 991 Danbury Road, Wilton.
This event is part of the Palm Bay International World Beat Series with media sponsor WFUV-90.7 FM. Liebert’s global musical success is partly an outgrowth of his cultural roots in a German household and extensive travel in Europe and Asia. In 2009, Liebert received the Silver award for Best Flamenco Guitarist from Acoustic Guitar Magazine.
For tickets ($47.50), call or visit the box office at The Ridgefield Playhouse, (203) 438-5795, or order online at ridgefieldplayhouse.org .
