Théâtre Outremont welcomes

flamenco guitarist Paco Peña

at the Jazz All Year Round series

Tickets go on sale this Saturday at noon

Montreal, Thursday, August 6, 2009 - This fall, the 2009-2010 year of the Jazz All Year Round series presented by TD, will reach as far as Théâtre Outremont, which will host a concert by Spanish flamenco guitarist Paco Peña on Friday, October 23 at 8 :00 p.m. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, August 8, at noon.

From New York’s Carnegie Hall to London’s Royal Albert Hall, this teacher, composer, producer and artistic director was named “Best Flamenco Guitarist of the Year” five years in a row by America’s Guitar Magazine, while the New York Times hails his virtuosity. Accompanied by his musicians, singers and dancers, Spanish guitar master Paco Peña, who is often likened to Paco de Lucia, explores the essence of flamenco, embodying authenticity and innovation, with each of his performances offering a genuine trip into Arab, gypsy and Spanish folk traditions.

A non-profit organization, the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal is pursuing its mission of disseminating and developing jazz and its musical cousins for the tenth year in a row, by reinvesting its surpluses in the presentation of special concerts at its Jazz All-Year Round series. With support from public partners, specifically, the Société de développement des entreprises culturelles (SODEC) and Canadian Heritage, it can thus offer Montrealers and visitors to the city the chance to experience the rhythms of jazz all-year round! The Festival also recognizes the support of Bell, partner in the series, as well as the Hyatt Regency Montréal, official hotel of the Jazz All-Year Round series.
