Passionate Violin & Versatile Guitars

Original and Traditional Music
Klezmer to Hollywood

The public was closely seated together as the duo opened their colourful concert with blues songs from the American mountains. Always in intense dialogue with each other, Dylan Vaughn and Alec Sloutski enthralled the public with music by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Django Reinhardt, Nirwana and Bessie Smith. With the lute music of John Dowland arranged for guitar and violin, the artists undertook an exquisitely elegant journey into the Elizabethan Age.

Alec Sloutski, violin, an outstanding exponent of authentic klezmer music is also a fine musician in the swing tradition of Stephane Grappelli,  playing sparkling swing, blues, and pull-your-heartstrings romantic ballads of the 30's and 40's.
