All the music is served with homage and respect to the artists who created it and the myriad  human conditions that inspired it's creation.

Pianist Bill Anschell’s concert credits include eight European tours with vocalist Nnenna Freelon
and seven South American tours leading his own trio. He is also a prolific composer; his original

player for live gigs and studio work. Feeling at home playing almost any type of music, he has

returned to tour as a performer in 1998.
Busch was the recipient of a King County Arts grant for a recording project entitled “Drums and

Eric & Encarnacion – Duo Flamenco

North City Bistro 1520 NE 177th St, Shoreline, WA

Eric & Encarnación are an internationally renowned flamenco duo known for the deep connection and energy that permeates their live performances, and ability to invoke the flamenco spirit night after night. They have performed nationally and internationally for years with the world/ rock supergroup "Children of the Revolution" and their touring flamenco company "Flamenco de Raiz", working with some of Spain's greatest living flamenco artists. Based in Seattle, they have played sold- out theaters all over the Seattle area, including Meany Hall, Paramount Theater, Benaroya Hall, and The Triple Door. They appeared in major festivals and theater series, including headlining Quebec's prestigious "World Guitar Festival".

Encarnación was born in Barcelona to a family of exiles from the Spanish Civil war and grew up in Barcelona and Mexico City. Still, her family kept her immersed in flamenco music while in Mexico, and she later returned to her homeland to study and perform. A dancer, singer, and guitarist, she is a unique and one-of-a-kind performer who entrances audiences everywhere with her grace, depth, musicality, and intense energy.

Eric Jaeger "El Comanche" has lived and studied extensively in Andalucía, Spain and has dedicated his life to the art of flamenco guitar. On stage, Eric draws on his extensive experience as a producer and songwriter, bringing a sense of melody and composition to his performances. Eric was the lead guitarist and co-founder/producer of "Children of the Revolution," a successful band which fused flamenco, Latin, Middle-eastern and rock melodies. Eric has produced 7 CDs to date for the band, and his work has been featured on the best-selling Putumayo Presents series (“Greece” and “Swing around the World.” Recent recordings include “Flamenco de Raiz” live CD, and studio single “Mi Aire” with one of the world's greatest flamenco singers, Rafael de Utrera, and “Rumba al Maestro” which went #1 on Amazon’s Flamenco and Rumba download charts.

Eric & Encarnación return to Spain every year to stay immersed in the art of flamenco, and more importantly, to live and breathe the flamenco culture with their friends and family in Sevilla and Barcelona. FLAMENCOSEATTLE.COM

We went to see some live music. There's a pricey cover charge but the music was really good. The food was excellent. Delicious pork loin with cream sauce. Good portion size of antipasto. Wonderful cheeses and salami. Very delicious seafood pasta. The prices were reasonable. We picked a great Italian Amorone wine off the shelf. The corkage was pretty steep, 12.00 given we had appetizers, full dinner and 20.00 cover. But the wine was fantastic and a fair price. Lots of wines from most important wine regions. The shelves are full and the prices fair. We'd definitely return. Service was very good especially given it was a full house. Small venue, quaint and enjoyable.

Close, tightly packed room, but comfortable. Soft lighting, exceptional wine selection. The wonderful, smooth vocalizations of Gail Pettis backed by her talented quartet. Hot and delicious shrimp fettacini paired with a perfect chardonnay. Fantastic. A winner all the way.

However, everyone should have this experience; toothsome menu choices just right sized for visiting and music listening. And live music! First time out post covid and I felt like I'd been nervous system detoxed; hallelujah for establishements that are here for us all in the transition time. Thank you to the owners and the musicians!! And saftey is top notch with vaccine proof required; another thank you!
