A special one off project with U.S/German mandolinist Chris Acquavella to mark 10 years since the passing of mandolinist, Alison Stephens.
Alison and I had a mandolin and harp duo for nearly 20 years, going under the name of Duo Mandala (and The Pleasant Pluckers!! when we were at music college together).
During our partnership we released an Album called "Tapestry" on Black Box label and had many pieces written for us, and performed around the UK.
Chris (who studied and worked with Alison) initiated this project to commemorate the anniversary, and so we will playing pieces written for Duo Mandala as well as other mandolin repertoire associated with Alison.
We will be performing at a special concert at Trinity Laban on Monday 23rd March - details to be announced.
We will perform a concert at Sandbach Concert Series on Wednesday 25th March - tickets available HERE
We will also be playing at the BMG Federation Festival in Edinburgh on Saturday 28th March
