In a long awaited return concert, International recording artist, Enrique Henao, who has garnered critical acclaim as one of the worlds finest, free spirited acoustical guitarists, takes the stage to perform this benefit concert.
From 1975 to 1980, Enrique Henao lived and performed in Portland becoming one of the city’s best loved musicians and entertainers. Here at last is the opportunity for Portland to again delight in one of Enrique’s captivating performances.
Schooled in music by his father, also a gifted musician, Enrique performed in his first concert at the age of 13. Enrique has since played in more than 80 countries giving him a great knowledge of the world’s music, as well as a profound respect for and understanding of all people, making him a true citizen of the world. Enrique has been witness to the ravages of poverty in his homeland Colombia, here in the United States and in travels. Enrique’s commitment to use his talent to serve children is evident in his support of a children’s hospital in Manizales, Colombia and his numerous free benefit concerts on behalf of children’s aid organizations including: Hearts in Motion, Habitat for Humanity, Benaroya Cancer Research, and many others.
Henao has performed for heads of state and keeps thank-you notes from the White House and the Vatican. His scrapbook tells the story: contracts for performances on “The Mike Douglas Show” and “The Tonight Show”: theater photos with Andres Segovia: pictures of marquees with Johnny and June Carter Cash, Julio Iglesias and others.
