Fiery Flamenco guitars in a peaceful Peninsula setting
The Peninsula Summer Music Festival combines picturesque Mornington Peninsula venues with internationally renowned musicians for this now well-established summer festival in the European style.
Where better to launch this year's festival opener than Lindenderry at Red Hill, with its 'fusion of European charm with a distinct local flavour and genuine hospitality'.
Arte Kanela is at the forefront of Australia's Flamenco music scene. Brothers Richard (guitar) and Johnny Tedesco (cajón), together with acclaimed guitarist Nathan Sinclair, will provide an afternoon of fiery Flamenco music in a bucolic Australian peninsula setting.
The Tedesco boys have a musical pedigree that dates back two generations. Flamenco music is in their blood, and their specialty is creating a musical dialogue between flamenco and other music styles.
Have a leisurely meal before or after the performance, or just stroll around the grounds and take in the views and the scent of eucalypts. Either way, Arte Kanela is the perfect way to cure the New Year's Eve hangover or kickstart the New Year.
