"An unusual instrumental combination of harp and guitar fascinated the audience at this concert organised by the Weymouth Music Club.

The rapport between the musicians was remarkable as they presented these classical pieces with confidence and flair."

[the Dorset Echo]

 

from a letter from the chairman of the Stapleford Music Society

"We cannot thank you both enough for the wonderful concert you gave us here at Stapleford--it wasn't just the instruments that were electric,you both positively fizzed. We have had so much positive feedback from people saying how much they enjoyed your performance and how elated and energised they felt by it.

The programme was a delightful mix of composers, with some well loved favourites and some new exciting compositions. People also appreciated your comments on the pieces and their composers as well as your explanations of the different techniques needed for the compositions and the instruments."
