Brew Guitar Duo new CD “Songs & Dances” $25

Brew Guitar Duo_Songs & Dances_CDThe new CD “Songs & Dances” by the Brew Guitar Duo is now available.

Bradley Kunda and Matthew Withers are based in Canberra where they have been studying guitar for many years with Tim Kain. They gave a stellar performance in Cooma on Sunday 15 November. This concert was part of their “Songs & Dances Tour”. What a great concert! These guys put the fun back into classical music. The audience loved the rapport between these awesomely gifted young players. It was a varied and entertaining programme with music from Cuba, diabetes and pregnancy Venezuela, Spain and France, as well as contemporary Australian composers, Phillip Houghton and Richard Charlton. There was even a  great jazz standard ” Mr Sandman”, as well as some great arrangements of the Ralph McTell’s “Streets of London” and the Beatles’ song “The Fool on the Hill”.

Bradley and Matthew played together with wonderful precision and phrasing. There are many delightful melodies, flashes of technical brilliance, as well as subtle, delicate and beautiful musical gems. You also feel that these guitarists are having a lot of fun playing together.

Samples of the new CD may be heard on their website as well as information about their tour dates:
