Harry Knight

Harry Knight is a young ten year old guitarist from Calgary who has been studying Flamenco guitar since the age of four. Although his father is his primary teacher, Harry has traveled to Madrid, Spain to study with three of the finest guitarists of our generation; Victor "El Tomate" Marquez, Javier Conde & José "El Viejin" Jiménez.

Harry's first performance was at the age of 5 in the Leacock Theatre at MRU and this performance was followed by an appearance at the 2013 Calgary Spanish Festival. Since that time Harry has performed on the 2014 Calgary Stampede Grandstand Stage for crowds of over 20,000 people over the course of eleven evenings and at several Flamenco Festivals including the Calgary International Flamenco Festival and the Victoria Flamenco Festival. Harry has toured with guitar virtuoso, Pavlo to Toronto, Edmonton and Calgary with standing ovations at each show.

From concert appearances across Canada, to performances in Madrid, Newcastle upon Tyne, England and his own 90 minute show in the University Theatre in Calgary, Harry has performed in over 170 settings including a show produced by legendary musician, Tommy Banks in Edmonton's Winspear Centre. Recently, Harry performed on the Jack Singer Concert Hall stage in the production, "Listening to Our City" and on the Jubilee Auditorium stage in the production, "Que Pasa."

Upcoming shows for Harry include the 2017 Rouyn Noranda guitar Festival in Quebec and the Victoria Flamenco Festival this summer. Whether it is on the Calgary Stampede Grandstand stage or at the Calgary Stampede Talent Search, Harry always loves being part of the greatest show on Earth. This year, Harry has been invited to perform two solo 30 minutes set on the Coca Cola stage, July 12th, 2017 during the Calgary Stampede.
