John Standefer and Brooks Robertson form an exciting new guitar duo!
The debut concert of "Brooks & John" will be on February 16 in Washougal, Washington. John and Brooks have both appeared for years at the Chet Atkins conferences in Nashville. This year they discovered that with Brooks' recent move, they now live less than 30 minutes apart.
Since late July they have been working on original duet arrangements for a wide variety of popular tunes. It's amazing how the language of music transcends the 40 year difference in the two players ages.
The result of their collaboratuion is amazing and quite beautiful. Come see these two in concert and experience an evening of true guitar artistry! Buy a ticket to the debut concert and you'll be entered into a drawing for a free CD at the concert!
