Duo's Encore Performance

Article excerpt

Following the capacity audience for William Barton and Anthony Garcia's performance at the Tweed River Art Gallery in March, an encore performance will be held on Saturday, May 21, from 4 pm at Tyalgum Hall, Coolman St, Tyalgum.

Judith White, a member of the Tweed Art Gallery audience, provided this review: aEven by the high standard of Tyalgum Festival events, last Sunday's performance at Tweed River Art Gallery was exceptional. Guitarist Anthony Garcia and didgeridoo player William Barton are both virtuosi, but when they team up they have a musical chemistry of a rare kind a a generous meeting of two great cultures.

aTogether and singly, they played their own compositions including Desert Stars Dancing, the signature track of their new album; Mountain Tremolo, a Garcia work inspired by an earlier visit to Tyalgum, and; Electric Landscapes: White Notes between Heaven and Earth, about what it is to be alive.

aGarcia is a brilliant exponent of the Spanish guitar, while Barton demonstrates that the didge requires discipline and technique to match any instrument of the western tradition.

aIn a riveting appearance, Barton's mother, Aunty Delmae Barton, sang in a voice that expressed at once awe, sorrow and celebration a a sound emanating from the depth of the human soul and from the heart of this most ancient of lands.

aIt was a profoundly spiritual moment in a concert the audience acclaimed as a great cultural experience.

aDon't miss the return performance.a Tickets for the performance cost $35 for adults, friends $30 and students $15.
