Bach meets bluegrass in this beguiling performance by Canadian-born violinist Edwin Huizinga and Grammy Award-winning guitarist William Coulter from the US. Together they explore the fire and grace that connect the elements of classical, folk and contemporary musical traditions from around the world.
Edwin has established himself as one of North America’s most versatile violinists and William has been performing and recording traditional and classical music for more than 25 years. They have been touring together for three years.
They love both classical and folk music and explore the dance elements of Bach and Vivaldi as well as timeless melodies from Argentina and Bulgaria, along with Irish and American folk tunes.
Catch them on their first visit to New Zealand in this special lunchtime concert.
