Acoustic Eidolon - Cancelled Unfortunately this show has been cancelled, you can catch Acoustic Eidolon on Sept 18 in Newington CT at 2pm as the Newington Town Hall Auditorium
Acoustic Eidolon, featuring Joe Scott on
double neck guitjo and Hannah Alkire on cello are from Colorado and have graced
stages throughout the US, Europe, Australia and Canada. With ten CDs and
a DVD to their credit, these masterful artists continue to captivate audiences
throughout the world with their signature “new acoustic” sound and boundless
possibilities in blending Celtic, Folk, World & Latin music influences, something
that Dirty Linen Magazine
praises as “a sumptuous musical feast.” They are described by
the Swallow Hill Music Association as “an evening of brilliant instrumentality,”
and Georgia’s Good Life Magazine
enthuses, “Acoustic Eidolon offers concert-goers a chance to absorb some of the most
powerful and intriguing music on the scene today.”
Their original sound is created by the mixing
of their diverse musical backgrounds and their unusual instrumentation
including the one-of-a-kind double neck guitjo, an instrument of Joe’s own
design praised by USA Today
as a “beautiful harp-like sounding instrument … like nothing we’ve ever heard
before.” The double-neck guitjo has 14 strings and Joe
has developed his own style and technique, playing both necks simultaneously.
Classically-trained cellist Hannah Alkire studied with G. Magyar of the
Hungarian String Quartet and is recognized internationally for her stunning
tone and emotional, impeccable playing and for taking the cello places it’s
never been before.
The two joined their personal lives after
forming their musical alliance and were married in 2001. The result is a
coupling of intricate and passionate music with genuine and engaging stories.
