Blow in with Ryan Williams and Matthew Horsley

Saturday 4 February, 2.00 to 5.00

Canterbury Girls Secondary College 

16 Mangarra Rd, Canterbury

We know Ryan for his work for the Guild in recent years, including at Myrniong. His work for us reflects his innovative and interesting approach to the recorder’s possibilities, and we have enjoyed his musicianship as a performer and teacher.

Ryan has been collaborating with Matthew Horsley since 2010 as the  Williams and Horsley Duo, and this will be the first time we have welcomed Matthew as a tutor. Matthew plays  uilleanpipes and percussion, and the duo has performed in classical and folk festivals in Australia, Ireland and The Netherlands. They perform regularly around Victoria, including recently as part of the Recital Centre's 6.00 series.
