The BA Jazz Duo ref: 6562
The BA JAzz Duo perform lively, inventive acoustic music on viola and guitar. Inspired by the musical legacy of Django Reinhart and Stefan Grapelli, they play a potpourri of gypsy swing, ragtime, blues, popular music of the 1920s, 30s and 40s, Tin Pan Alley hits and Celtic tradition with attitude.
Andy is a finger-style guitarist with a diverse folk-jazz background. Stephen is a classically trained viola player and seasoned orchestral session musician who has taught viola at Trinity College London and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and recorded extensively in chamber orchestral settings. Both share a common delight in exploring the rich heritage of folk and popular music in an upbeat, jazzy way.
Their programme is always varied and entertaining, exploring classical, jazz, blues and folk melodies, and together they sparkle, making them just the ticket for creating convivial ambience at weddings, fund raisers and social gatherings. Upbeat music to surprise and delight.
