I just returned from Spain after living there for 6 months and will be in the States until a least the fall. I played with some of the top dancers in while in Madrid and have enriched my knowledge of flamenco greatly! I already have several gigs through Gigmasters booked for the summer and look forward to playing many more shows as a soloist and with other groups.
After a very busy "Fall of 2012" including several Galas for the newly refurbished St Louis City Public Library (booked through Gigmasters)
Thank You to all who came to my farewell show on December 8th at Joe's Cafe! It was a packed house and left me with a great feeling.

Dirty: Flamenco guitarist Lliam Christy staves off perfection
By Roy Kasten Thursday, Oct 27 2011
As 60 or so patrons file into the black-box theater at the Kranzberg Arts Center, a guitar player sits in the corner in the dark, a foot on the stage, a foot on the floor, tapping lightly to the rhythm. The night's production is Federico García Lorca's Blood Wedding, a mythic play of soul-consuming passion, betrayal and violent retribution. The score is performed by flamenco guitarist Lliam Christy.
Watching Christy warm up and then slide his original themes and improvised traditional flamenco pieces in and out of Lorca's poetry, one notices how serene he looks, how easy he makes the constantly shifting rhythms and intertwined melodies of flamenco appear. He'd be the first to tell you he wasn't born to play in this most hieratic and demanding of styles, but he'd also tell you it has become his life's work.
As musical director for full-on flamenco performance troupe Los Flamencos and coleader of the Reventones, a Latin guitar group featuring Los Angeles-based guitarist and singer Jon-Oliver Knight, Christy has become the central figure in flamenco in St. Louis. Earlier this year, the Reventones released its second album, Dirty It, a collection of rumba and flamenco guitar pieces — augmented by light percussion, palmas, violin and voices — some written by Christy, some drawn from the classical and folkloric traditions. The music is at once lively and dense, playful and meticulous. It's gypsy music with a distinctively St. Louis back-story. etc...

"Lliam is an amazing acoustic guitarist who plays classical, Spanish, Latin, and traditional wedding music. He was incredibly easy to work with, flexible, professional, and generous with his time. He played exactly what I wanted (during the ceremony) and selected amazing songs during the times I gave him the liberty to do so (during cocKtail hour and dinner). I received many many compliments on his playing. Lliam is very versatile and played a mix of traditional US wedding music and traditional Spanish and Flamenco wedding songs, all of which were part of my ceremony. I was so lucky to find William on Gigmasters!"

"Liam is an amazing musician! Our event attendees raved about his performance long after the event was over. Lliam was very professional and accomodating for our event, but was also very friendly and visited with our members after the performance was over. He is definitely a first class act. We would certainly recommend Lliam!"

"Lliam was awesome at our wedding and reception. He was very easy to communicate with before the wedding and always very prompt to respond. He had some great song suggestions for our ceremony that we enjoyed very much, and he learned a song for me to walk down the aisle to.
He arrived early, was set up at both the ceremony & reception and started playing right on time. He played a mix of classical and flamenco style music which was perfect for our event. All of our guests were very impressed. We had many comments about how awesome the music and guitarist were.
If you're looking for a professional artist and beautiful music, don't hesitate to book with Lliam."

"Liam was truly fantastic! He is not only extremely talented, but also amazingly versitile. With only 10 days' notice he was able to learn three specific songs we wanted to have played during our ceremony. The flamenco-inspired music during our reception was unique and truly unforgettable. Multiple guests asked where we'd discovered Liam, and everyone was impressed. Liam is low-maintenance, reliable and friendly. DO NOT HESITATE to book him for your event! "
