This sees a collaboration between two major European voices of the guitar, as heard on their recent album together, which showcases 11 original compositions, performed on everything from nylon string acoustic, to steel string, to electric, to 12 string, to fretless and glissentar, and more! Expect a dazzling display of contemporary fare, ranging from Turkish panache to soundscapes of Latin America to English pastoralism. Their relationship has developed a spontaneity and intuitive interplay that is full of excitement and creative magic. They are joined by Raph Mizraki on bass and Paul Cavacuitti on drums.

Boaters Blues Festival presents DB3 Boaters Blues Festival presents DB3

To coincide with the Boaters Blues Festival, Jazz at Boaters is going to get a taste of some dynamic blues and rock, with a funky twist, courtesy of Dom Brown, guitarist, singer and long time member of Duran Duran. DB3 is a collaboration led by Dom, with bass player and vocalist Phil Spalding, who has played with the likes of Robbie Williams and Mick Jagger, and Boaters favourite (and drummer to stars such as Mark Knofler and Eric Clapton) Ian Thomas. With a mixture of original material and covers by artists such as BB King and Jimi Hendrix, this should be an explosive evening of great music!
