Gracing stages throughout the US, Europe, Australia, and Canada, Acoustic Eidolon features Colorado artists Joe Scott on double-neck guitjo and Hannah Alkire on cello. With nine CDs and a DVD to their credit, these masterful artists captivate audiences with their signature “new acoustic” sound that blends Celtic, Folk, World, and Latin music styles. Dirty Linen Magazine praises Acoustic Eidolon's work as “a sumptuous musical feast,” and USA Today says that Joe's unique guitar/banjo combination is "like nothing they’ve ever heard before."
Joe Scott performs on his unique double-necked, 14-stringed creation called the guitjo. He can play both necks simultaneously -- a technique he developed over time which continues to awe his peers as well as Acoustic Eidolon’s audiences.
Hannah Alkire was classically trained on the cello, having studied with G. Magyar of the Hungarian String Quartet. She has won accolades worldwide for her exquisite tone and mesmerizing emotional performances, and her inquisitive nature has led her cello playing into uncharted territories, giving her a reputation as a tour-de-force in cello performance.
They are described by the Swallow Hill Music Association as “an evening of brilliant instrumentality,” and Georgia’s Good Life Magazine enthuses, “Acoustic Eidolon offers concert-goers a chance to absorb some of the most powerful and intriguing music on the scene today.”
