In Motion

A robust blend of upbeat rhumba-flemenco and Latin styling with a dash of jazz and a touch of tango. Accordion, bass and percussion provide the rhythmic, harmonic backbone for the virtuoso nylon string guitar work of Brad Prevedoros who former CBC radio host Max Ferguson referred to as “a very fine guitarist.” The music of Firedance, like their name, evokes a warm, lively, danceable feeling.

Turn Of The Hand

Familiar pop standards and classical pieces, some with a light bossa nova feel. Nylon string guitar, synthesized strings and a variety of percussion.
An impeccable display of virtuosity, sureness of touch and a fleeting Jazz improvisation drawing clearly on a classical background.
