Two classically trained Flamenco guitarists paid a visit to the American River College campus on April 7 to provide a free music workshop.

Jose Blanco and Roberto Corrias, who are from Spain and Italy respectively, have a combined 60 years of experience playing music and have each had music featured in radio, television and film.

Assistant instructor Richard Brebrick introduced Blanco and Corrias by saying, “There are a lot of people that are entertainers, there are few that are artists. These two are artists,” said Brebrick. “There’s a big difference.”
