Ronald Radford Concert in Fairfield Bay

The North Central Arkansas Foundation for Arts and Education (NCAFA&E) will present the American master of the Flamenco guitar Ronald Radford November 8, 2 P.M. at Kirk of the Hills Presbyterian Church, Dave Creek Parkway, Fairfield Bay.

A protégé of the legendary Carlos Montoya, Radford lived and traveled in Spain where he immersed himself in the musical wisdom of the Flamenco guitar masters in addition to classical studies with Andres Segovia.  He is the only individual ever to be awarded a Fulbright Scholarship in Flamenco.  His concerts have taken him to universities and concert halls in 15 countries and have included such notable places as New York’s Carnegie Hall, Washington’s Kennedy Center, UCLA’s Royce Hall and the University of the Americas in Mexico.

Radford will present a varied and entertaining program of haunting Gypsy melodies and dazzling Flamenco techniques.  This performance will appeal to all ages and a broad range of musical tastes from those who like the creativity of jazz and the fun of Bluegrass to those who love the classics.  In addition to the concert he will be presenting four  programs at area schools, with an emphasis on drug prevention.

Funding for this event is being provided by Mid-America Arts Alliance and Chesapeake Energy.  Tickets are $8.00 for non-members, $6.00 for members and students are FREE.  For further information contact NCAFA&E at (501)253-7909 or visit
