Oxley-Meier

Free Event

 

Two of the finest guitarists -in any genre – that you’re likely to hear. Brit Pete Oxley & Swiss Nic Meier bring two lifetimes’ experience as creative musicians to the bandstand. Oxley has been a mainstay on the British scene over the past two decades. An alumnus of Boston’s famed Berklee College of Music, Meier has recently released a trio album with jazz greats Vinnie Colaiuta & Jimmy Haslip, as well as continuing to tour the world as a member of Jeff Beck’s group. Yes, we know Beck’s a legendary guitarist – that’s a measure of the regard in which Meier is held by his peers

For their live gigs, they duo aims to entertain by playing with a spontaneity and an intuitive interplay that keeps them fresh and fired up. Expect a dazzling display of contemporary fare, ranging from Turkish rhythms to soundscapes from Latin America to English pastoralism. Hear this played on nylon string, steel string, electric, 12 string, fretless, slide, guitar-synth, glissentar guitars and more!
