Andrew White & Gillian Boucher | Sat 10th Jan | 8pm – 10pm
A seasoned touring duo, Andrew White and Gillian Boucher present an evening of exquisite technique and artistry of song, exploring the rich tapestry of both traditional and contemporary Celtic/Folk/Blues and beyond.
Andrew is a troubadour and one of those rare artists who can skilfully combine brilliant finger-style guitar work with a compelling story in lyric and deliver them both in an engaging live performance. Having graced the stages of theatres and festivals across the globe for nearly three decades, Andrew’s music has been described as a road map of the experiences of a musical life coupled with guitar technique that has left audiences breathless. To date, more than one million albums featuring Andrew’s music have been sold worldwide.
“White’s style is a unique, soulful mix, and his guitar playing is extraordinary.” – Rambles Art Magazine, U.K.
“Andrew is a magical writer, listen to him with your heart.” – Tommy Emmanuel
Whether performing with her full band in front of thousands, as a vibrant acoustic duo with her guitarist, or solo in a kitchen of her native Inverness County playing the old tunes of her ancestors, Gillian never ceases to inspire with the dynamic expression of her music.
“In the hands of Gillian Boucher, the violin becomes a vehicle of transportation for the mind… Her lyrical approach and sensitivity transcends genres and cultures, transporting listeners to far off exotic places accessible only in imagination.”
Doors and café open at 7:30. Tickets ($15 prepaid or $20 at the door) may be purchased at Artworks Theatre website.
