Tony McManus and Julia Toaspern at Montrose Folk Club
7 June 2022, 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm£11
Highly regarded as a brilliant Soloist, Guitarist Tony McManus has frequently collaborated with diverse musicians throughout his stellar career. This is a first Tour of Scotland for his latest Duo with Berlin-born Guitarist/Violinist, Julia Toaspern,, whose love of Jazz and Baroque, seasons his more Celtic and traditional approach.
Hailed by the late John Renbourn of Pentangle as “the best Celtic guitarist in the World”, Tony McManus has been listed as one of the 50 transcendental Guitarists of all time by Guitar Player magazine. His dexterous dazzlingly original playing draws on traditions from the entire Celtic diaspora – Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, Galicia, Cape Breton and Quebec, along with flavours from Jazz and Eastern European music.
In a McManus and Toaspern live performance, the flashing fingers and whirling tunes from Greece, Brittany and Ireland are supplemented by the occasional song, either in Julia Toaspern’s clear pure voice, or the gorgeous melodies of such as Tony’s version of “The Road to Drumleman”
