The Juanito Pascual Trio features three highly versatile and dynamic musicians, New York-based percussionist Guillermo Barrón (Jose Feliciano Band, John Benitez) and stunning bassist Brad Barrett (Jason Moran, Ran Blake). By combining their distinct musical backgrounds with a powerful personal chemistry, the Trio has created a fresh, exhilarating and constantly evolving sound, performing to enthralled audiences throughout the U.S. and abroad.

Their sound is a truly organic blend of a mastery of traditional and contemporary flamenco plus influences ranging from Jimi Hendrix and the Grateful Dead to Miles Davis and J.S. Bach. The 2014 release “Juanito Pascual New Flamenco Trio” was included in NPR critic Milo Miles’ Best World Music Albums for that year. They are currently preparing to release a recently recorded 3-song EP in addition to work on a new full length album.  

Since the 2003 release of Juanito’s debut solo recording “Cosas en Comun”, Pascual’s international touring schedule has brought him to venues including the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, New York’s Lincoln Center, and Blue Note Jazz Club, The Panama Jazz Festival and Madrid’s renowned Casa Patas. He has performed with a lengthy ‘who’s who’ of top flamenco artists including 2016 tour dates with Jorge Pardo (of Paco de Lucia’s legendary Sextet) in addition to collaborations with a diverse range of musicians including Grammy-winning soprano Dawn Upshaw, bassist John Patitucci (of Chick Corea’s Band), pianist Danilo Perez (of the Wayne Shorter Qt), percussionist Jamey Haddad (of Paul Simon’s group), virtuoso guitarist Grisha Goryachev, and many others.

The Trumansburg Conservatory of Fine Arts is proud to announce Terry Robb, live in concert on Friday, November 9 from 8-10pm.

A dynamic, unforgettable fingerstyle guitar virtuoso, Terry Robb has redefined acoustic blues guitar with his signature fingerpicking style. Drawing international acclaim from worldwide audiences, music critics and his distinguished peers, Robb’s unique blues sound, incorporating elements from the Mississippi Delta music tradition, ragtime, country, swing, and jazz, has made him a legend among blues musicians in his prolific music career spanning four decades.

“It’s the rare guitarist who can whip off a killer 12-bar blues solo, then turn around and fingerpick Travis-style with speed and subtlety. Yet Portland, Oregon, guitarist and singer Terry Robb does just that.” – Ian Zack, Acoustic Guitar

Advance tickets are available online HERE for $13, and $15 at the door. Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of the most celebrated blues guitarists at the historic Conservatory.

Additionally, Terry will be holding a guitar workshop the following day on Saturday Nov 10 from 2-4 PM for $35 (paid at the door on the day of the workshop) or $30 for concert attendees from the night before.
