After learning to play the guitar at age 11, Ottmar pursued his rock ‘n’ roll dreams in Germany and later Boston. Liebert founded the ensemble Luna Negra (“black moon”) in 1990. Since then, Liebert has been nominated for a Grammy five times, released 25 albums, received 38 Gold and Platinum certifications, and seen his debut album Nouveau Flamenco go from selling 1,000 copies in a Santa Fe art gallery to being a double-platinum best-selling guitar album of all time.
Liebert has performed with musical stars as diverse as Diana Ross (“I Never Loved a Man Before”), Kenny Loggins (“I Would Do Anything”), Celine Dion (“Call the Man”) and Carlos Santana (“Samba Pa Ti”).
“We are thrilled to welcome Ottmar back to the Tower,” said Ray Solley, Executive Director of the Tower Theatre Foundation. “His mellow and often serene instrumentals are the perfect way to end a summer evening in Central Oregon.”
The Tower Theatre Foundation owns and operates the historic venue in downtown Bend. The Foundation’s mission is to provide performing arts, civic, educational and social events that enliven and enrich the lives of all Central Oregonians. Program information, group discounts, gift certificates and individual tickets are available at the Tower Theatre box office, or at www.towertheatre.org.
