The Brewery Arts Center’s Levitt Foundation and its Levitt AMP Music Series concerts continue Saturday night at 7 p.m.

The free concert will feature the Jason McGuire Trio performing with Terceto Kali.

Jason “El Rubio” McGuire’s mastery of the flamenco guitar began in Dallas as a jazz and classical guitar student. After relocating to New York to pursue a career in flamenco, McGuire was chosen to record with famed guitarist Carlos Heredia on his album Gypsy Flamenco (2004), and has since performed with numerous Spanish artists, including Jose Anillo, Chuscales and Alejandro Granados, as well as rock legend Carlos Santana and jazz artist Wynton Marsalis.

In 1997, McGuire became the musical director for Yaelisa & Caminos Flamencos, an award-winning dance company whose flamenco productions have won critical and audience acclaim for innovation and choreography. McGuire is also the musical director for the New World Flamenco Festival, one of the top two flamenco festivals in the United States.

With McGuire on guitar, Terceto Kali and the Jason McGuire Trio is rounded out with Marlon Aldana on drums and cajón, and Paul Martin Sounder on upright bass. Seamlessly blending Flamenco, Latin, and Jazz, the Jason McGuire Trio has been nominated for “Best Ensemble” at the Isadora Duncan Dance Awards in the Bay Area. The group has been performing since 2014 with a deep dedication to inspirational compositions and incredible showmanship.

There will be food trucks, a painting wall for attendees to get creative and activities for kids. The BAC built a stage next to its building, facing blocked off Minnesota Street, where there’s chairs.

A small lawn, which was required by the Levitt grant, has been put in for additional seating.

The Artisan Store will remain open as will the Performance Hall where bathrooms will be available.

The series presents free live music Saturdays through Aug. 6.
