Felicity Lawless and Black Rabbit George – Guitar Journeys
From out of a hidden hinterland of Gold Coast music comes a collaboration that should have happened long ago … two flawless guitarists whose talents have at last collided in a burst of musical energy.
With rhythms that explode from their love of Classical, middle-eastern and flamenco inspirations, Felicity Lawless and Black Rabbit George (Paul George) explore each other’s virtuoso guitar work to produce music that is even greater than their individual parts.
From a wellspring of individual life experiences, study and travels, they write and perform astonishing music, full of light and shade, virtuosic brilliance and deep sensitivity, while delivering timeless Classical guitar pieces in between.
The Black Rabbit honed his skills in Europe, Asia, America and now he charms audiences in Australia with his modesty while dazzling them with his guitar virtuosity. His performances become a “Must Not Miss” event around the country for all lovers of great music.
From Spain’s tapas bars to the bustling Japanese live music venues, to Australian festivals, bars, Felicity Lawless has garnered a loyal base of music lovers always glad to see her return. Some see her as visionary, some a Flamenco rocker, but Felicity defies classification, fusing Flamenco, world, rock and folk elements in a style that is all her own.
The result? Inspirational. Energising. Absorbing. The style? Don’t even try to categorise. But do try to imagine how really gifted musicians can seamlessly blend Classical, flamenco and world music into glorious harmony.
