The Wood Duo - Guitar Duo

This Lancashire guitar duo was formed in 1989 and are very experienced at performing at all kinds of events from restaurants and weddings to corporate events and concerts. 

"Impressions" features new works by the composers Mark Houghton and Robin Hill, and "Southbound" is devoted to Jazz and South American Classics. The latter was recorded on a visit to Northern Ireland where they also gave a concert featuring works from both CDs.
They gave the world premiere performance of Impressions, by Mark Houghton, at a recital for Manchester Guitar Circle in May 2003 after which the work was published by d'OZ.
