Gudrun Walther & Andy Cutting “Conversations” Folk from Europe

September 24 @ 20:00 - 22:00 CET (Europe)

Award-winning duo Gudrun Walther and Andy Cutting brings two truly exceptional musicians together.
Both are among the best-known musicians in their genre in their home countries and have received multiple awards such as the BBC Folk Award and the Irish Music Award. Their debut album Conversations won the German Record Critics’ Awards (I/2024).
Their interaction is characterized by empathy and spontaneity. Their line-up of diatonic accordion, violin and vocals is minimalistic, but they achieve maximum intensity.
They forego the security of fixed arrangements and rehearsed parts. Everything is direct, live, spontaneous and in the moment.
Their music is like a conversation, an exchange of thoughts or feelings – which is how the title of the album, which received rave reviews all over Europe, came about. In order to be able to interact with one another so freely, the musicians must have absolute mastery of their instruments, but virtuosity is never the focus here. It is more like a magical immersion into the wonderland of sound, with the musicians leading the way with somnambulistic security, inviting the audience to follow them on this journey.

An inspiring, magical and exquisite listen from two of the finest musicians on the European trad scene. The dynamic playing of the fiddle and melodeon is sublime.”
