Lovely old pub and restaurant.

Deirdre Cartwright and Kathy Dyson guitars celebrate the life and work of great New York jazz guitarist Emily Remler performing swinging jazz standards, bossa nova, Remler originals and some of their own compositions.
They are joined on some numbers by vocalist and storyteller Sarah P.

Kathy Dyson and Deirdre Cartwright are both superb players albeit with contrasting styles that, nevertheless, complement each other perfectly. “All The Things You Are” reminded me of MJQ. The interplay between the guitars could have been created by Milt Jackson & John Lewis – that’s how good it was.”                                          Lance Liddle, Newcastle gig review

The event at Mills’ Café was remarkable; the sheer expertise and beauty of the guitar music by Deirdre Cartwright and Kathy Dyson. Included in their two sets of guitar duets – a performance of a Neruda poem, with vocals by Sarah P, a similar treatment of a Lorca poem – La guitarra – and, most deliciously, a performance full of passion and – dare I say it – of duende of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Take this Waltz, a version of a poem from Lorca’s ‘Poet in New York’. Brought the house down.”                 Lorca in England festival, June 2011

The duo’s first album was released earlier this year,

“Their interplay (particularly striking on the album’s closer, ‘Whirligig’) is a delight throughout a varied and consistently entertaining set.”
Chris Parker
