About This Show

Boyd Meets Girl pairs Australian classical guitarist Rupert Boyd with American cellist Laura Metcalf. The duo performs an eclectic and engaging range of repertoire, from the baroque through modern day, including many of their own arrangements. 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 Sybarite5 and Break of Reality, has been called “brilliant” by Gramophone. Boyd Meets Girl has toured throughout the USA, Australia, India and Nepal, including appearances at the Newport Music Festival (Rhode Island), the Gharana Music Festival (Kathmandu, Nepal) and the Monsoon Music Festival (Kolkata, India). A happily married couple, the duo lives in New York City.

Boyd Meets Girl will release its debut album in July 2017 on the Grammy award-winning label Sono Luminous, and will feature works by Bach, Piazzolla, Zenamon, Falla, et al. Both Boyd and Metcalf released solo albums in 2016 to much critical acclaim: Boyd’s album Fantasias was described by Classical Guitar Magazine as a “triumph of brilliant, assured playing on an incredible variety of piece”, and was selected by American Record Guide as “Critic’s Choice” of 2016; Metcalf’s album, First Day, was praised as “a flat-out winner” by Madison Magazine, and debuted at #7 on the Billboard classical chart.
