The Duigan and Grace Duo, an unusual combination of piano and guitar, has won a popular following at festivals and on stages across the country. Their programmes together traditionally include many of their own duo arrangements and improvisations on classic melodies, jazz standards, Latin milongas and Spanish classics.
Their session will also include Black Orpheus, Fields of Gold, Tico Tico and favourite Spanish guitar solos.

Additional notes: James Grace studied at the Royal College of Music in London as a Foundation Scholar with Carlos Bonell. Upon graduating, he became the first guitarist in the college’s history to receive the Tagore Gold Medal, an annual award presented to the most outstanding student.

After spending two years in Doha, where he taught guitar at an international music centre, James returned to South Africa and was appointed Head of Classical Guitar Studies at the University of Cape Town.

Christopher Duigan is one of South Africa’s busiest concert artists, giving about 100 performances annually. His performances range from those of the core classical repertoire, both as soloist with orchestra and in recital, to new music and music well beyond the classical repertoire. His strong sense of community development is shown in his active promotion of regular Music Revival concerts across KZN and in other parts of the country.

These concerts have not only developed new audiences in various communities but also provided a performance platform to many young and aspiring soloists. In addition, his performances have regularly included his own arrangements, improvisations and compositions.
