The Belgian guitarist Filip Verneert and the Spanish pianist Enrique Simon are soulmates , which results in a virtuoso musical conversation. Their music is at the same time melodic, engaging and surprising with roots in jazz and classical music. They often play together as a duo but for the Blue Lamp concert, they have brought their quartet from Belgium for a short Scottish tour.
None of the musicians takes the upper hand, this is no virtuoso competition. Guitarist, pianist, bass player and drummer search and find, give and take and most of all, they share their ideas with each other and with us.
Filip and Enrique have been working together for three years. They met in 2015 during a jam session in Spain and since then, they have played many concerts together in Belgium, Spain and Holland. Last year Filip and Enrique recorded their first duo CD, ‘Meeting Patricia’, and toured Europe to great critical reviews.
