The lightning skills of two virtuoso performers combine, as the ultra-modern vibrancy of the electric fiddle sparks off the anciently funky sound of the harpsichord. An unlikely but inspired union across the ages.The equivalent of putting a rocket engine into a Morris Minor, the
supercharged harpsichord mixes with the most contemporary of
electric fiddles in a soundscape where flangers, distortion and live looping blend seamlessly with sounds that have cast a spell over listeners for centuries.
Their all-original set is a mixture of celtic, rock, blues, klezmer, a bit of jazz, hints of Hendrix, medieval pop tunes with some searingly beautiful melodies thrown in.
This is not like anything anyone has heard before: both a connoisseur’s synthesis and an instantly accessible, energy-filled toe-tapping evening.
