THMF to host Ronald Radford concert
Texas Heritage Music Foundation will host American Master of Flamenco guitar, Ronald Radford in concert at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014, in the Floyd & Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center on the SU campus.

He is the only individual ever to be awarded a Fulbright Scholarship in Flamenco guitar and traveled thousands of miles in Spain studying the music of the Spanish Gypsies.

His international tours have taken him to fifteen countries, from Australia to Switzerland and from Canada to Panama. He toured for the State Department as a musical ambassador in Mexico, Guatemala and other Latin American countries.
He was born in California, grew up in Oklahoma, and now lives in St. Louis, Missouri where he continues his career as one of the most successful ambassadors of Flamenco music in the world.
