Ottmar LiebertGrammy® nominee Ottmar Liebert and his band Luna Negra will perform at the historic Capitol Theatre in the Cleveland Street District in Downtown Clearwater on Sunday, January 10 at 6 & 8:30 pm.  Tickets are on sale now.

Liebert’s incredible global success on a musical level often seems like a simple outgrowth of his cultural background and powerful wanderlust in his formative years. Born in Cologne, Germany,  he began playing guitar at 11, and traveled extensively through Europe and Asia intent on fully absorbing each musical tradition he encountered. After pursuing his Rock and Roll dreams first in his native Germany and then in Boston, he abandoned the frustrations and settled in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

In 1989, he formed Luna Negra and during the last decade, he has become one of the most successful instrumental artists, thrilling audiences worldwide and releasing a catalog of classic recordings. Best known for his “Nouveau Flamenco” guitar playing style, his debut album sold double-platinum and is still one of the best selling guitar albums of all time.  He has received five Grammy® nominations and more than thirty-five Gold and Platinum award certifications in the U.S. alone.

Reserved tickets priced at $33.00 will be available at the Ruth Eckerd Hall Ticket Office located at 1111 McMullen Booth Road in Clearwater, by calling 727.791.7400 or by logging onto www.rutheckerdhall.com.  The Ruth Eckerd Hall Ticket Office is open Monday through Saturday, from noon to 6 pm and one hour prior to showtime.
