Join “flamenco phenom” (Boston Globe) Juanito Pascual at Orange Door Kitchen in West Acton for an intimate, rare solo performance.

“Juanito combines vivid colors, a rich imagination and a yearning, never-satisfied mastery of his art.”
—Steve Morse, Boston Globe writer; Billboard and Rolling Stone contributor

“One of the hottest flamenco guitarists to emerge in recent years.”
— NPR’s Here and Now

Juanito Pascual is an internationally recognized guitarist whose sound is an organic blend of masterful traditional and contemporary flamenco with influences ranging from Jimi Hendrix and the Grateful Dead to Miles Davis and J.S. Bach. Recent highlights include a performance at TEDx Nashville, an international tour with acclaimed Flamenco icon Jorge Pardo, and performances for a number of film scores in LA.

He is recognized in both Spain and the U.S. as a unique and creative flamenco and jazz performer. He has performed internationally in fine arts centers, clubs, and festivals including Lincoln Center, the 92nd St. Y, Blue Note Jazz Club, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center at Notre Dame University, Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, Panama Jazz Festival, and Madrid’s Casa Patas. Juanito has been featured in special events including concerts hosted by Jane Goodall in Panama, on Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion, and as a guest on National Public Radio’s “The World.” In 2009, Juanito made his on-screen debut alongside Steve Martin and Andy Garcia in the 2009 film “Pink Panther 2.” He continued his film score work on a number of projects, including the 2016 Netflix biopic based on the life of Pope Francis, “Call Me Francis.”

Through partnerships, Juanito has consistently sought ways to align his passion for music with environmental and social causes. Most notable is his ongoing collaboration with Earth Train, a Panamanian rainforest project which uses music and art as a means to inspire and educate a new generation about environmental stewardship.
