Lord Of The Strings: Acoustic Eidolon
March 20, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Joe Scott and Hannah Alkire joined forces on the music scene in 1998. This confluence of two gifted musicians has resulted in the internationally acclaimed duo, Acoustic Eidolon.
Joe Scott performs on a unique, custom designed “Double-neck Guitjo”, a banjo/guitar combination created exclusively by Joe and deemed by USA Today as “a beautiful harp-like sounding instrument…. like nothing they’ve ever heard before.”
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 nine 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.”
The double-neck guitjo has 14 strings. Joe can play both necks simultaneously, a technique he developed over time which continues to awe his peers as well as Acoustic Eidolon’s audiences.
Hannah Alkire was classically trained on the cello. She studied with G. Magyar of the Hungarian String Quartet and has won accolades worldwide for her exquisite tone and mesmerizing emotion she puts into each performance. Her inquisitive nature has prompted her to take her cello playing into uncharted territories, risky moves that have continued her reputation as a tour de force in cello performance.
