Ralph Forehead


Ralph Forehead has been playing Spanish guitar since he first started learning the instrument
over 15 years ago. His fascination and passion for flamenco music led him to travel to Andalucia
in southern Spain in 2007 where he studied with some of the finest flamenco guitarists in the
world, including Gerardo Nunez, Manolo Sanlucar and Manolo Franco.
He has accompanied touring flamenco dancers and performed with his own ensembles and
dancers from Hobart. Ralph's extensive experience in other genres such as jazz and latin
allows him to tailor his music to the situation - be it fiery flamenco, gentler exquisite melodies
or a combination of the two.
