World-renowned duet performing Sunday in Cut Off
Joe Scott and Hannah Alkire
Acoustic Eidolon (idle-on), a duet that blends Celtic, Folk, World and Latin music influences, will perform a concert at 3 p.m. on Sunday, February 16 at Community Bible Church (CBC) in Cut Off.
Joe Scott and Hannah Alkire have played in venues throughout the United States, Europe, Australia and Canada. The couple created their original sound by mixing their diverse musical backgrounds and unusual instrumentation including a one-of-a-kind double neck guitjo and a cello.
The concert is neither Christian based nor does it benefit the church at which they are performing. CBC is merely opening its sanctuary for them to perform. There is no set cost but the suggested donation amount is $15 to $20 per person.
The duo has eleven CDs and a DVD to their credit. Joe’s 14-string guitjo design was praised by USA Today as a “beautiful harp-like sounding instrument like nothing ever heard before.”
Each of their songs has a story, often rooted in their own lives or travels. They believe in fielding life’s “bumps” and finding ways to dance. Their positive outlook and lively-yet-contemplative music often draws out their audience to share their life experience and stories as well, adding to the inspiration that leads this couple in their songwriting.
In addition to their website www.acousticeidolon.com, video clips can be found on YouTube.
