Hands on Strings

On their new CD "FREE RIDE" HANDS ON STRINGS celebrate their breathtaking mixture of world music, concert music and jazz and reveal unbridled joy of playing and boundless imagination. 

For years, the two musicians have been shaping a new definition of guitar music, playing with the intensity of a band and the timbre of an orchestra. In doing so, they manage the rare feat of completely forgetting both stylistic boundaries and those of the instrument and conjuring up music for all the senses. With their album "OFFROAD" released in 2005, the duo succeeded in inspiring audiences and critics alike and immediately earned a leading place in the international guitar scene. Numerous invitations to festivals in the USA and in many European cities from Rome to Hamburg followed. 

Thomas Fellow and Stephan Bormann are considered two of the most influential protagonists of the current guitar scene - Stephan not least through his publications and successful musical projects and encounters (Cristin Claas, Nils Landgren) and Thomas as a percussive one-man band with Friend `n Fellow and mastermind of the European Guitar Quartet. 

Please buckle up, close your eyes and enjoy the musical adventure to your heart's content!
