SKANSON & HANSEN PERFORM ALL WEEKEND - Guitarists Extraordinaire Blend Classical And Contemporary Sounds
Stroll the art walk to the sounds of acoustic guitar mastery courtesy of Skanson & Hansen, Colorado’s premier finger-style duo. The duo will perform their unique brand of musical magic throughout the two-day event. Skanson & Hansen’s repertoire of intricate and enchanting guitar duets spans classical works, pop tunes and dazzling original compositions. Sample the rapture at http://www.coloradoacoustic.com
Skanson & Hansen perform a rarely-heard fusion of classical and acoustic guitar styles. This cross-discipline synthesis gives Skanson and Hansen the creative latitude to bring melodic classical guitar mastery to folk, rock and pop songs while infusing timeless masterpieces with acoustic fun and funky rhythms. The duo describe their musical pairing as double-finger style guitar – where both simultaneously play the melody, chords and bass line. This blending creates a sophisticated, closely-woven sound that fully expresses the song’s melody within a rich harmonious musical landscape. Their rallying cry is, “Two Guitars Can Change The World!”
