Classical guitarist and composer Darren Curtis Skanson along with his ensemble of cello and violin present classical, Spanish, and modern music as The Skanson Strings. Skanson’s arrangements and compositions are more gentle and melodic than other modern guitar artists. He calls this style “light classical”. The trio performs a wide variety of classical pieces, including well-known favorites such as Beethoven's "Ode To Joy”, and his own original compositions, blending the two into a seamless listening experience. The harmonies he creates are incredibly unique and fresh sounding.
Gregg Hansen's Peace & Love & Jigs & Reels brings you Celtic music on Irish flute, whistles, alto flute, and guitar with contagious energy, whimsy and tenderness. As a duo, Gregg Hansen and Cynthia Jaffe have been heard at major Celtic festivals throughout Colorado.
