Anxo Lorenzo Band
Another exciting booking - from Galicia, NW Spain - boosting the international flavour of GTSF, and building on the continental flavour of 2019's festival.
Well how to describe Anxo, maestro might be a start, when you hear his mastery of Gaician gaita (bagpipe) and whistle we guarantee you will be blown away (no pun intended, honest!) his band combine an absolute mastery of their instruments and provide a show full of power passion and aural delight.
In the UK Anxo and band have played WOMAD, Celtic Connections, Cambridge, Sidmouth and locally the Nottingham Riverside Festival in 2011. His exceedingly high octane, mesmerizing performances have left audiences in euphoria, becoming a modern entry in the lore of many of these long-established events
He has played with many great musicians during his career Celtic and otherwise, from Lunasa to Kathryn Tickell and many others.
Here with his band - a truly pan-European 5-piece - including Galicians, Portuguese and Irish musicians.
“…a combination of sheer speed and unbridled imagination that simply
defies belief!” Geoff Wallis at the Irish Music Review.
