Cuban Guitar Recital in Surrey

My name is Barny Taylor and I am the organiser of classical recitals in a venue in Richmond called The Dysart Arms. On Sunday 1st March 2009 we are presenting a solo recital by Cuban classical guitarist Ahmed Dickinson, who will perform traditional Cuban works by Rojas, Martin and Laura. The second half of the concert will be a duo performance from Ahmed and violinist Emma Blanco.

I hope this recital might be of interest to your members – would you be able to add the information?

Many thanks for your time

Best wishes

Barny Taylor
