Ed Stephenson and the Paco Band will be performing original compositions and music by Paco De Lucia, Ottmar Liebert, Isaac Albeniz, Enrique Granados and Chick Corea. The band performs regularly throughout North Carolina, with frequent appearances in their home base area of Raleigh-Durham.

Canadian guitarist and Alanna recording artist, Ed (Stefanyshyn) Stephenson’s virtuosity extends throughout the classical Spanish, flamenco and flamenco fusion genres. He has studied and performed in Spain and toured throughout North America as a soloist, a member of the North Carolina Guitar Quartet and the Paco Band. His numerous return engagements with the North Carolina Symphony, Raleigh Symphony, North Carolina Theater, North Carolina Bach Festival and concert series at universities and colleges in the Southeast have established him as one of the region’s most sought after performers.
