Acclaimed North American Duo, Fire & Grace, Announce NZ Tour

Roaring Girl Records Presents


Fire & Grace - Debut Album Is Out Now

Toronto, Canada - March 16th, 2017 - Fire & Grace: Virtuoso Violin Meets Celtic Guitar - Edwin Huizinga, Virtuoso Classical Violinist & William Coulter, Grammy Award Winning Celtic Guitarist bend and blend genres and explore unique arrangements of classical and traditional folk music. They are bringing their musicality and virtuosity to New Zealand March 29th - April 10th, 2017.

LISTEN AND SHARE: Fire & Grace - An Introduction

William Coulter on Fire & Grace:

“One of our most intriguing arrangements is a piece we call the Liquid Gold Suite. The foundation of the Liquid Gold Suite is the Partita in D minor for solo violin by Bach. We play the four movements as a violin and guitar duo - and we insert an Irish tune in between each movement - and then a wonderful Irish reel following the gigue to finish it off. We love the idea of blending Baroque dance music with Irish dance music - highlighting similarities and differences.”

Review: Howard Davis On Olivier Assayas' 'Personal Shopper'

Howard Davis: Never Too Old To Rock & Roll - Jethro Tull

As Greil Marcus recently observed in an NYRB review of Robbie Robertson's autobiographical Testimony, in rock and roll there is always an origin story. In the case of Jethro Tull founder Ian Anderson, he claims to have been influenced by his father's big band and jazz record collections and the emergence of rock music in the 1950s, but became disenchanted with the "show biz" style of early US stars like Elvis Presley...
