Ottmar Liebert & Luna Negra
Grammy award nominee Ottmar Liebert and Luna Negra are coming to town and will play songs fans have come to know and love, as well celebrate their new release, ‘Slow’.

Liebert is a five-time Grammy nominee with multiple Gold and Platinum records who has sold millions of records across the globe. A skilled practitioner of contemporary flamenco guitar, he is always a surprise. He plays with lots of textures – contrasting traditional and electric instruments. Liebert will play songs from prior albums as well as songs from his latest albums.

About his new album, Slow, Ottmar says:
Sometime in 2015 I decided to record by myself, without the band, and that I wanted to create slow music. For my new album, I wanted to raise my guitar against the sound of billions of smartphones beeping with the latest news, mentions, likes, and comments, keeping us in a state of constant alarm. I also discovered that there has been scientific research into how slow music can relax the listener’s heartbeat and lower their blood pressure. I made all of the music on this album with only one guitar and one microphone. Working by myself in the studio felt like writing a very personal diary. For example, I recorded Elegy just a day after Prince died.

This is the beauty of instrumental music: like the description of a tree in a book that requires your imagination so that it can take form in your mind, instrumental music can take on different shapes and colors, depending on your experiences.

...the Luna Negra touring band is a rubber band...it changes with the seasons, grows bigger and gets smaller...often the touring band does not resemble the group of musicians that makes the recordings...the only constant member since 1989 besides Ottmar is Jon Gagan on bass...
