Having won an award at the 2016 Jazz Awards, Alec Dankworth will lead an all star line up to celebrate all things Spanish, which have helped to provide inspiration for Spanish Accents.

Music performed during the evening will include the work of the likes of  Pat Matheney, Chick Corea, even Rodrigo – pieces reinvented for the performance and will be performed alongside traditional l folk songs and originals in flamenco rhythms creating a wonderful and genuinely Spanish world.

During the performance, the music will also be highlighted by flamenco dancing on the studio stage, performed by Jesus Olmedo.

Meanwhile, the music will be performed live on stage by Alec Dankworth on double bass leading the ensemble, supported by the youngest of the continuing Dankworth generation Emily Dankworth on vocals.  The show will also feature performances by Chris Garrick on violin, Tori Freestone on saxophones, Phil Robson  on guitar and Demi Garcia on percussion.
