Tickets: $12 adv/ $15 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Matt Flinner Trio: Mandolinist Matt Flinner, guitarist Ross Martin and bassist Eric Thorin cover a wide variety of musical styles—all with the common ground of American roots music. Bluegrass, jazz and old-time music are all present here in their ways, along with a dose of classical chamber music composition and arrangement, as the members all draw from their wide array of musical loves, experiences and influences. These influences boil down into the trio’s own organic sound of New Acoustic / Modern String Band music. Whatever label you put on it, it is guaranteed to be fresh and original, and definitely something you’ve never quite heard before.

Trio Cubay opens

The oldest son of the famous La Familia Valera Miranda septet, Enrique (Kiki) Valera Alarcón is considered by many to be Cuba's greatest living cuatro player. He is also a multi instrumentalist (tres, guitar, bass, keyboards & percussion), composer, arranger, sound engineer & producer.

Kiki picked up the Cuban tres under the guidance of his famous father Felix when he was just a kid. He enrolled in one of the most prestigious music schools in Cuba, the Conservatorio Esteban Salas in Santiago de Cuba when he was 11 & by 15 he was touring internationally. Around that same time, La Familia Valera Miranda was the subject of an investigation by famed musicologist Danilo Orozco. This resulted in an album & documentary on their musical heritage - La Antología Integral de Son - and an invitation to the Smithsonian in Washington, DC when Cuba & the US were still in the throes of the Cold War.

After 25 years of directing La Familia Valera Miranda, Santiago de Cuba’s most beloved Cuban son septet, international recording artist Kiki Valera is now living in Seattle & working with a new lineup of talented musicians.
