Cello-guitar duo to play Saturday
October 21, 2012
Get ready for a dynamic blend of cello and guitar when Jenn and Jonathan Adams perform at the North Columbia Schoolhouse Cultural Center on Saturday. Their name, Montana Skies, is a metaphor for musical freedom, and they are following their creative instincts far beyond traditional boundaries.
“While the music defies simple categorization, it is a fusion in the truest sense of the word,” Jenn Adams said. “It’s been called everything from chamber rock to psychedelic strings. Whatever you want to call it, rest assured, this ain’t your granny’s chamber music.”
In concert, these award-winning musicians delve into music from Pink Floyd and Rush to Vivaldi and House of the Rising Sun, as well as their own originals that have been featured everywhere from NPR to the Travel Channel.
Montana Skies’ name is taken from one of the first songs Jonathan Adams composed for the duo. The song was written specifically about being in Montana and the joy of inspiration Jonathan felt from its natural beauty. Combining elements of classical technique, jazz improv and the power and energy of rock ‘n’ roll, Jonathan’s guitar wizardry and Jenn’s blazing electric cello combine to create a sound that is truly remarkable.
