SOLD OUT | Boyd Meets Girl

Wed August 9, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm AEST

$35.00 – $55.00

The grandson of Robin Boyd, Australian classical guitarist Rupert Boyd, with American cellist Laura Metcalf, will perform at Walsh Street, the iconic, modernist home built by his grandfather. The duo, Boyd Meets Girl, performs an eclectic and engaging range of repertoire, from the baroque through modern day, including many of their own arrangements.

The duo has toured the world sharing their eclectic mix of music from Debussy and Bach to Radiohead and Beyoncé, and their two studio albums have been streamed well over 3.5 million times on Spotify alone. Both acclaimed soloists in their own right, Boyd has been described as “truly evocative” by The Washington Post, and as “a player who deserves to be heard” by Classical Guitar Magazine, while Metcalf, also a member of the ensembles Break of Reality and The Overlook has been called “brilliant” by Gramophone.

Boyd Meets Girl has toured throughout the USA, India, Nepal, New Zealand, and every state and territory in Australia, including engagements at Caramoor, Newport Music Festival, Bargemusic, Moab Music Festival and many others.

The duo arranges much of their repertoire themselves, drawing inspiration from artists across all genres, and often speak from the stage about the works to create an engaging, conversational concert experience that breaks down boundaries not only between musical genres but between audience and performer.
