Event Archive - David Sinclair and Keith Bennett Duo

Fri. December 7th 2018 @  community hall (All Ages)
8pm doors at 7pm
An acoustic guitar & harmonica duo featuring a mix of blues, gypsy jazz, folk, and more, instrumental and vocal, by two of Canada's best!

Expect to hear, see and feel music deeply when David Sinclair and Keith Bennett perform together. Their impressive musicianship and quirky, humorous and unpredictable musical buffet is always a memorable experience.

David Sinclair is truly a humble master of acoustic guitar and commands it like few others. Sinclair plays with the grace, dexterity and wisdom of someone who has dedicated his life to being the best guitarist he can be. You will hear a lifetime of dedication in every phrase of his playing, whether he is fluidly picking energetic patterns, simultaneously playing percussion and an intricate melody, or bringing you to tears with a tender ballad.

Keith Bennett’s expressive and nuanced playing redefines harmonica for every listener. The chromatic harmonica is one of the most difficult reed instruments to improvise on. With each hole containing four different reeds (notes), it’s mind-blowing to watch Bennett extract fast, complex phrasing from the instrument (which he plays upside down). Also a multi-tasker, Bennett simultaneously “doubles” an improvisation section on guitar and harmonica.

Inherently modest, gentle-spirited individuals, Sinclair and Bennett bring authentic exuberance to their music, playing straight from their souls. Listeners can’t help but be emotionally drawn in.
