Groovemasters Vol. 4 - Songs for Our Ancestors $15.00 $10.00

   Classic guitarist Benjamin Verdery and folk / celtic / New Age
 
Master William Coulter combine their talents on this svelte piece of duo guitarmanship called Song for Our Ancestors. The result of the Coulter/Verdery combination is a truly unique and appealing musical concoction and truly masterful recording reveals more layers with each listen.
 
In the artist's words...
“You guys must do an album together!” exclaimed master guitar maker Jeff Traugott after hearing two duos on Bill’s CD Celtic Sessions.
 
From the beginning we always loved the blend of the classical and steel string and had already begun to explore what the two playing traditions had to offer each other. There is no limit to the melodies that are in the air. For example, Bill would play “Drops of Brandy” and I would do a silly dance and begin to write another part. In the case of “Muiñeira DeChantada/Saint-Saëns” it seemed ridiculous to sandwich the melody from Saint-Saëns Symphony No. 3, fourth movement melody in-between a Galician pipe melody, but somehow we felt it worked. Bill and I did what musicians have done for centuries: we simply set melodies for our respective instruments in the only way that we knew how at that moment. Whether the melody is from Tibet or Ireland we hope you hear the love and respect we have for the tune.
