Camp Creative guitar tutor Dudi Shaul is teaming up with two friends, both also world-class guitarists, for a one-off collaboration at the Bellingen Memorial Hall on Wednesday January 10.
Two of the trio, Dudi and Will Anderson, grew up in Bellingen, and have since taken their guitar playing international.
They will be performing with their “great mate and inspiration” Gerry Mapstone.
Dudi Shaul is a graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts and Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and has studied with Australian guitar legends such as Doug de Vries, Tonié Field and Israeli musicians Yair Dalal and Harel Shachal. His travels and engagement in the Ethno network have seen him perform in many countries, including Sweden, Slovenia, Germany, France, Croatia, Cyprus, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, Israel, New Zealand and Australia.
Berlin-based Will Henderson has studied classical, flamenco and jazz guitar with luminaries such as Karin Braidwood, Raffaele Agostino, Damian Wright, Steve Brian and Guy Strazzulo. He has performed solo at the Opera House and at the Alice Springs desert fest, toured the East coast of Australia with numerous groups including The Lindo Ladettes, The Milkshakes and The Beans, toured Peru and Thailand, was part of viral fame with previous group Aston and has studied and performed flamenco in Spain and the Canary islands.
Gerard Mapstone has explored the Gypsy trail from southern Spain through Arabic, Indian, and contemporary music streams. He has done numerous collaborations and support shows throughout his career, including Tomatito, Estrella Morente, Cyndi Lauper, Buena Vista Social Club, The Gypsy Queens and Kings, Pierre Bensusan, and Fanfare Ciocarlia.
Dudi says concertgoers should expect “a night of nylon flavored ear chocolate bridging the gaps between Flamenco, Classical, Brazilian and Jazz”.
Wednesday January 10 at 7.30pm, Bellingen Memorial Hall.
