Canto Latino

Amanda Handel – vocals

Garry Daley – Accordion

Matt Handel – Saxophones

Emerging from an amalgam of styles, Canto Latino draws from a wealth of artistic experience in a unique combination of renowned performers from the Blue Mountains. While all four artists have very distinctive styles with well-established reputations, they each share a desire to create a renovation of the Latin music genre which ventures into new territory – beyond their respective fields of specialisation. Canto Latinobrings the expertise of Amanda Handel in tango, flamenco & Art music, Jane Andino in Latin & South American music, Gary Daley in jazz & contemporary and Matt Handel in jazz, funk & soul.

Skarrat and Watts

Glenn Skarratt – guitar and vocals

Simon Watts – fiddle

 

When fiddler player extraordinaire Simon Watts teamed up with guitarist and producer Glenn Skarratt to record a CD, musical magic started to happen in the studio.  Bridging musical styles from Irish to Jazz, Bluegrass to Latin with a touch of Rock and Blues, the resulting release, “The Weeping Tree Paddock”, solidified the pair’s resolve to create an entertaining mix of all the different styles of music they love to play.

Simon’s lifetime of playing various styles of music from his Classical training through to the Celtic music of his ancestors combined with his love of performing, has helped make him a favourite with audiences.  He is a polished and exuberant musical spirit who has travelled extensively and worked with many different musicians here in Australia and overseas.

Glenn is a versatile multi-instrumentalist featuring finger style and flat picking acoustic guitar as well as mandolin.   Classically trained, he likes to blur the boundaries of root music putting jazz into Celtic, Blues into Folk, Funk into Country making his own blend.  Glenn has a vast repertoire of songs collected over many years of playing in bands around the country.

Bringing this idea to their live performances, Simon and Glenn form a flexible, versatile and sometimes unpredictable unit with a large and eclectic repertoire.  They enjoy challenging each other on stage sometimes making up arrangements on the spot but always with a mind to keep their audiences entertained and leaving them wanting more!

A critic said that Rachel and David’s playing “has the feel of a celebration, of untempered, free and loose-limbed music-making, where lines are shaped by boldness…”

The program will include works by J.S. Bach, a piece written especially for the concerts by David Pereira, some duos by Béla Bartók and some musical surprises!
