After many years of playing together John Williams and John Etheridge are joined by classical guitarist and composer Gary Ryan in a colourful and varied programme of solos, duos and trios.
Williams and Etheridge will play some of their most popular pieces together and own compositions and Gary Ryan will play his own Benga Beat.
The programme will also feature duos played by Ryan and Williams, by Ryan and Etheridge and trio pieces Malinke Guitars and Triangular Situations. All pieces will be introduced by the players.
John Williams has collaborated with many musicians including Julian Bream, Itzak Perlman, Andre Previn, Cleo Laine, John Dankworth and Daniel Barenboim. Other musical activities have included the group Sky, collaborations with Richard Harvey, a duo with John Etheridge and the music of Latin America and Africa. He recently performed and recorded a DVD with the Palestinian duo Sabil: this is an example of the particular importance to him of the role of the guitar outside the confines of the purely European tradition.
