A GUITAR virtuoso will demonstrate his skills at a Valentine’s Day show in Otley.

Eduardo Niebla is returning to the Courthouse on Friday, February 14 due to popular demand.

Niebla, who is also a composer, has been acclaimed as one of the most potent forces in flamenco jazz fusion.

His highly lyrical style, which features explorations into Indian, Arabic and classical music, has earned him many fans around the world.

The guitarist’s concert appearances have included performances at the Cairo and Tbilisi International Jazz Festivals, the Jaipur Festival India, the Queen Elizabeth Hall London, the Odessa Jazz Carnival and the Olympic Games in Greece.

He has also played at the San Isidro Fiesta Madrid, Celtic Connections Glasgow and at Glastonbury, and held concert tours in Europe, the Baltic States, the Middle East and South Africa.

As well as his work with jazz and Spanish flamenco guitar, Niebla has collaborated with the trance group Juno Reactor and, during his early career, played in the Spanish progressive rock band Atila and the Franco-British prog rock group, Mother Gong.

He has also collaborated with artists across the globe including George Michael and Craig David.

His latest album, Las Olas de Niebla, is dedicated to his brother - the acclaimed artist José Niebla - and he continues to tour, compose and record.

An Otley Courthouse spokesperson said: “After a sell-out performance here in 2016 Eduardo is back.

“If you have not had a chance to hear this amazing guitarist then come along for a night of unparalleled flamenco and jazz guitar playing.”

The show starts at 8pm and tickets cost £14.

Local fans of British rock band Queen, meanwhile, should keep Saturday, February 8 free in their diaries. That’s when Killer Rhapsody - The Queen Experience is coming to the Courthouse.

Hailed as one of the best Queen and Freddie Mercury tribute acts, the band puts on a show of more than two hours packed with both the big hits and lesser known classics like Last Horizon, I’m In Love With My Car and Brighton Rock.

Queen fans are being promised ‘an amazing time you will not forget’.

The event is a standing show and tickets cost £12. A limited number of seated balcony tickets are also available for £14.
