David MacGregor & Ahmed Dickinson Cárdenas at Aberdour Festival

Two virtuosos of the guitar, the Scottish World-Jazz guitarist and composer, David MacGregor, and the Cuban Classical guitarist, Ahmed Dickinson Cárdenas, get together in an exclusive series of concerts to present an avant-garde project combining original music as well as Cuban, Classical and Jazz. The two musicians share the stage playing a mixture of guitar duets and solo pieces, as well as narrating interesting experiences through the show. Their relaxed stage presence and amazing ability on their instruments create a truly unique, intimate, fresh and interesting experience for any music lover. This will be a night of professionalism, extraordinary ability on the instrument and amazing improvisational skill; the perfect opportunity for people of different generations to get together and enjoy a wonderful night of music. David and Ahmed performed their first show together last March 2014 in the Bolivar hall in London and have since toured in Scotland.

An excellent opportunity to treat yourself to an evening of indulgence with excellent music, fine wine and tasty platters in our beautiful marquee by the sea. Cabaret tables with candlelight will add to the allure allowing you to experience and enjoy a top class event. So dust off those frocks or suits and allow yourself an evening to remember.

THE BRIDGE, AHMED DICKINSON CÁRDENAS & EDUARDO MARTÍN

 

When Cuban guitarist Ahmed Dickinson Cárdenas first heard the music of fellow countryman Eduardo Martín he felt euphoric. Martín’s style has an expansive sense of freedom that taps into pre Columbus traditions, jazz, flamenco, pop, Afro and traditional Cuban. The guitar is his favored instrument to mirror the melodic and rhythmic intricacies of the Americas’ cultural diversity.

Before moving to England, Dickinson Cárdenas took lessons with Eduardo and their friendship, idiosyncratic empathy and mutual respect has since transformed into a vehicle that connects, incorporates and juxtaposes their different generations, their musical ideas and ultimately the spiritual journey that drives this unique record.

The album is a compilation of some of Eduardo’s most alluring works for two guitars, where rock merges with son montunos; old Yoruba chants, feel-good rumbas, funk- boleros, new age tunes and cinematic pieces sit alongside Cuban tumbaos with slap bass.

 The Bridge is a wondrous display of fluidity, a continuous study of the Latin guitar, past and present.
