Considered by many as one of the best guitarists in Spain, Spanish Latin Grammy winner, songwriter and guitarist Twanguero is one of the most active artists in the Hispanic music scene. He is internationally renowned for both his impeccable fingerpicking style and his unique sound that blends rock, flamenco and blues with his own “Latin twang.” Twanguero will play at The Palms Playhouse (13 Main St., Winters) for the first time on Saturday, July 13 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $23 ($12 with student ID).  Born Diego García, this “fire-breathing guitar hero” (Alexander Varty, The Georgia Straight) launched his successful solo career after years of accompanying Latin music giants such as Bunbury, Calamaro, El Cigala and others. He has toured Spain, Mexico, North and South America, and other parts of the world, and been named an International Gibson and Bigsby artist. Twanguero’s solo release, “Backroads, Vol. 1” won the Spanish Independent Music Award. El Twanguero has released eight albums, the most recent of which is 2018’s “Electric Sunset.” True to the guitarist’s omnivorous tendencies, the 10 tracks on “Electric Sunset” include guitar-driven surf and flamenco-influenced rockabilly.  His previous albums include “Argentine Songbook,” on which he combined tango, rock, folk and electric twang, “Pachuco,” which echoes the rhythms and seductive melodies of 1950s Mexican-American youth culture, and “Carreteras Secundarias (Backroads), Vol. 1,” which emphasizes a combination of delicate classical-influenced pieces and Chet Atkins-style picking.  Praise includes being dubbed “a guitar master” by Gabriel José García Márquez, outstanding reviews from magazines Vintage Guitar, Guitar Player and Guitar World, and Rolling Stone Magazine declaring that El Twanguero is a journey into the heart of the music.”  Tickets are available at Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters, Armadillo Music in Davis, Davids’ Broken Note in Woodland, online via The Palms’ website and Eventbrite, and at the door if not sold out.  For more information, visit and  ]]>
