Christian Howes Solo And Duet

Christian Howes – Solo (Unaccompanied)

Christian Howes takes standard repertoire and combines it with today’s technology to literally play all parts of a tune by himself. Armed with a violin, pickup, guitar amp, and a loop pedal, this 45-75 minute show can be adapted to assemblies for K-12. Christian uses a loop pedal, accompanying himself to demonstrate a “world of violin.” The family audiences adaptation, showing Christian’s own musical development, from age 5 to 40, as he progressed from “Twinkle,” to Bach, to Paganini, bluegrass, jazz, and more, is particularly inspiring to kids and young music students.

 

Christian and Camille Howes

In this program, Christian Howes invites his daughter Camille to perform alongside in this father-daughter duo. Camille may have just started college, but her knowledge of improvisation, theory, and musicality allows her to perform at a level that may rival many music school graduates. Feeding off the energy and virtuosity of her father, Camille compliments Christian in a way which can only be heard in person.
