Duncan, a former student of Hartland Comprehensive in Worksop, is a brilliant classical guitarist who studied first at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester with Craig Oden, and then more recently at the Hamburg University of Music and Theatre with Olaf Van Gonnissen.

He has formed an exciting guitar duo with Viola Weiser of the Academy of Music ‘Hanns Eisler’ Berlin.

They will be performing a wide variety of music, including some fast and exhilarating Spanish pieces from Manuel de Falla and Enrique Granados and some enchanting English works from John Dowland, and popular classics from The Beatles.

Duncan’s brother Edmund was a pupil at St Augustine’s Junior School, Retford Oaks High School and Wales High School.

He is a virtuoso violinist and is currently studying at Trinity College of Music in London.

He will be performing Beethoven’s Spring Sonata and the Scene de Ballet by Beriot, accompanied by Martin Yates on the piano.

Edmund is a past leader of the Sheffield Youth Orchestra, the Rotherham Youth Orchestra and a member of the Sheffield Philharmonic Orchestra.

He will be performing Beethoven’s Spring Sonata and the Scene de Ballet by Beriot, accompanied by Martin Yates on the piano.

Martin is the artistic director of the Retford Generally Gilbert and Sullivan and accompanies international singing star Michelle Todd on her visits to Britain.

Duncan said: “We are really looking forward to coming back to Worksop from Berlin to perform at the Crossing.”

“It is a wonderful venue with excellent acoustics. The programme we have put together will showcase the guitar duo and the rich sound it produces.”

“I am very excited to be performing with Edmund in our home town.”

The concert will be held on Saturday 12th November at 7.30pm.
