Two leading innovators of the guitar, GRAMMY nominated Windham Hill superstar, Alex de Grassi and GRAMMY winning classical guitarist, Andrew York, join forces to fuse the sounds and traditions of steel and nylon into a unique duo program. With roots in seemingly different traditions - de Grassi as a largely self-taught folk and jazz musician and York as a trained classical artist - a mutual passion for exploring all types of music has led these two acclaimed composers/performers to branch out and find a common ground. In their music steel-string and classical guitar interact seamlessly. Juxtaposing original compositions, improvisation, and unlikely arrangements of everything from Monk to Piazzolla to the Police, their duo performances take audiences for a ride through astonishingly diverse terrain. This collaboration is sure to delight!
