      The soul of the Spanish guitar runs in Pablo Villegas’s blood. Born and raised in La Rioja, Spain – the country with unique and deep ties to his chosen instrument – Villegas is distinguished by performances as charismatic as they are intimate. We were muy feliz to welcome this wonderful musician back to the Levin Studio at WFMT before his performances at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music and the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts in Champaign–Urbana.
