BIO
Playing well-known Bluegrass, Roots, Irish and Americana
with old-time authenticity and edgy modern style, this
duo’s twin instrument attack will leave you tapping your
feet and swinging your partner round and round. You are
just as likely to hear a 100 year old tune as a popular song
from the radio in their unique folk style.
Hailing from opposite coasts, Elias and Calvin each bring
a distinct brand of authenticity to Blue Deux’s sound. With
a playing style ranging from gritty fiddle sawing to
smoothly resonant and lyrical, Elias Schwartzman takes inspiration from both fiddle players like Kenny Baker and
classical violinists like Joshua Bell. Bringing an equally diverse set of influences, Calvin Anderson’s flatpicked guitar
lines and rock-solid backup are rooted in modern pickers
like Bryan Sutton and Billy Strings, as well as traditional
pickers like Doc Watson. Calvin and Elias cross many
areas of folk terrain ranging from traditional Irish music,
Delta Blues, Bluegrass and Americana. Add in the crisp
vocals and soaring two part harmonies from both Elias
and Calvin and you get a recipe for music won’t be able
to resist.
With a wide range of repertoire spanning traditional tunes
to Film & T.V. Themes to re-imaginings of well-known
popular music, Blue Deux always makes sure you’re left
with happy feet, a happy mind and a happy soul.
