THE BOYS FROM ABOYNE - LIVE
Peter Lowit and I perform tasteful, melodic, attractive and readily accessible new music for guitar and double bass. Echoes of legendary duos in this format such as Danny Thompson & John Martin, Charle Haden & Pat Metheny or Gary Peacock & Ralph Towner.
Beautiful tunes that fuse genres - folky themes, jazzy chords, renaissance rhythm and filmy atmosphere in tunes we love and new compositions.
We take our name from my village where we rehearse.
We launched our EP 'In Arden' at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and have played at diverse venues across NE Scotland ranging from the Blue Lamp Aberdeen to Migvie Kirk.
' ... an absorbing and intimate evening of two perfectly contrasted instruments and players … tonal blending of guitar and bass ... equal partners, creating an improvised counterpoint, rather than merely melody and accompaniment ... improvising was mature and always organically related to the composition and mood … an excellent musical meditation with much to delight the ear and mind … positively inspiring.'
