Ghost Owl with Brooks Williams & Aaron Catlow

  • Thursday 7 April 2022
  • The Stoller Hall
  • £16

Part of our Sounds of Nature programme

Brooks Williams & Aaron Catlow join talents to create a collection of acoustic guitar and violin duets inspired by, and written for, the Barn Owl (aka the Ghost Owl).

It all started when wildlife conservationist and filmmaker/photographer Simon Hurwitz asked his friend and relative, guitarist/composer/singer Brooks Williams to record a couple of guitar tunes to accompany some of his short films. Recorded throughout the dark days of Winter 2021, Williams and Catlow bring their singular voices to this tradition with soaring melodies, heart-tugging counter-melodies and agile rhythms. They seamlessly connect Trans-Atlantic overtones of American Roots and British Folk with technical brilliance. These two are masters of their respective instruments. At its heart, Ghost Owl is a love song to the barn owl and the world in which it lives. Which, as it happens, is the world in which we live, too.
