“With four hands that create a musical tapestry of interwoven textures, they have become one of the most pleasing and entertaining guitar duos performing and recording today.” James Filkins - www.minor7th.com
Something very unique& beautiful happens when a classical & acoustic guitar play together. Something about the fingernails on the nylon and the flesh on the steel that creates a sound that is rarely heard.However - Skanson & Hansen have indeed found this sound. They bring their audiences this fresh, rich, original musical style called double-finger style guitar. That’s right - they’re both playing melody, chords, & bass at the same time. It’s orchestral as well as funky!!
Skanson & Hansen combines Darren Curtis Skanson and Gregg Hansen into a dynamic duo. They perform exciting, intricate, and beautiful guitar duets of popular 60's and 70's tunes, classical pieces, and original compositions. Each have played a lifetime of music & a world of styles to bring fresh & innovative instrumental arrangements to timeless classics like...
- Bach’s “Bouree” becomes funky-jazz
- Dylan’s “ Blowin’ in the Wind” becomes country -rock
- Leornard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” becomes Motown
- Louis Armstrong’s “Wonderful World” becomes a Hawaiian ukele feel ....just to name a few
This dynamic duo also draws from Spanish, Celtic, reggae, calypso, gospel and rock-n-roll....just to name a few.
Darren & Gregg will delight you with masterful guitar playing & funny & interesting stories about the music, their instruments, and what happened on the way to the gig. Their motto is “Two Guitars Can Change The World"
