Barrameda (2006)

You can purchase this album in the 'shop'.

John: "I had the idea of recording a CD that was only Flamenco Guitar without any percussion, singing and other instruments, purely guitar. We recorded it in a 16th century church in Derbyshire, England. It was very cold in the church as we only had one heater. On the third day, we'd just got warmed up and had to stop recording because the bell ringers turned up for practise! We managed to get it all done in five days! This recording is the culmination of six years colaboration with the Dutch guitarist, Jasper Lockefeer.
'Barrameda' taken from the town of Sanlucar de Barrameda in Spain where John's performance at the Flamenco festival was very well received.

This record was part of John's final exam concert when graduating from the Rotterdam Conservatoire. The panel of judges at his exam was so impressed with the music that they offered to fund a CD of the concert programme.
