Welcome! This page has been created to share resources, community events, videos and other information with my students or anyone who may be interested in learning more about the guitar. The content varies from information for beginning students to very advanced. The page was created with my college and adult students in mind, so please monitor young students with Youtube links and content. I hope you find the page useful. –Dr. Mowbray
North Meets South Duo
Toronto-born guitarist Danielle Cumming and American tenor John Wesley Wright, from Rome, Georgia, are colleagues at Salisbury University. The duo has performed together for over ten years and, while their repertoire ranges from the Renaissance to modern popular music, it is African American spirituals that hold a central place in their performances and educational outreach programs. In this video, you can listen to them perform, learn more about their music, and gain insights into historical sites and events in Salisbury, Maryland. The insights will include very serious discussion of racial events in Salisbury.
The North Meets South Duo will perform for the John E. Marlow Guitar Series on February 27.
