Catherine May (soprano) and Andrew Allen (guitar)

Catherine May and Andrew Allen formed their duo in 2018 to explore the repertoire for voice and guitar. They are particularly interested in exploring the eclectic and unique ways that the guitar and voice have worked together both historically and in contemporary music. The guitar has been used as accompaniment for the voice since the 16th century in both popular and 'art' songs. This evening's performance explores a wide range of styles and periods including songs by John Dowland, Fernando Sor, Franz Schubert, Joaquin Rodrigo and Joni Mitchell all of which demonstrate aspects of the close connection between the voice and the guitar.
