It would be easy to continue describing Threefifty Duo as a “classical guitar duo with a rock edge,” as Yale School of Music grads Brett Parnell and Geremy Schulick seamlessly weave their contemporary rock sensibilities into the rich texture of classical guitar. But after years of writing and performing together and now with a second album under Threefifty’s belt, the duo’s stylistic tendencies have expanded beyond their initial categorization, with genre blurred by an intensely personal sound. Their sophomore effort, Circles, presents a volume of all original compositions and a full emergence of the duo’s distinctive voice, highlighted by Dominic Frasca’s sumptuous production. The evening will feature a performance of the album in its entirety, with a video by multimedia artist Jennifer Stock.
