United by their passion to bring audiences music they love, Hamish and EmmaShay are excited to showcase the varied and rich expressive capabilities of the guitar duo as an ensemble.

This concert will explore music from the Classical and Romantic traditions of the guitar, with music from Puccini, Rossini, Segovia, Tansman and Castelnuovo-Tedesco, juxtaposed with splashes of modern Australiana by Phillip Houghton.
