Fusing folk, jazz,and pop styles, two-time Grammy-winner Laurence Juber creates a multifaceted performance that belies the use of only one acoustic guitar. The lead guitarist for Paul McCartney's Wings (with whom he earned a Grammy award), Juber is a world-renowned guitar virtuoso, composer and arranger. He has released 20 solo albums of which the latest, Soul of Light, is a newly recorded retrospective collection of 30 years of his original compositions. Juber's solo arrangement of The Pink Panther earned him a second Grammy. His L J Plays The Beatles, was voted one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine's all-time Top Ten albums.
the music might be best described as Folk music played by a top Jazz guitarist and the
result is refreshing and stunning. Highly recommended. - Folkworld Magazine, Germany
Duane Andrews' music is the product of a great ear, an adventurous spirit and a love of music that is beyond category. Uniting what would seem to be impossible - traditional Newfoundland music with the Gypsy Jazz of the legendary Django Reinhardt, Andrews makes it not just work - he makes it soar. Duane will be joined by renowned Cape Breton fiddler Dwayne Cote, with whom he released a stunning duo CD a couple of years back.
