Skanson & Hansen perform a rarely-heard fusion of classical and acoustic guitar styles. This cross-discipline synthesis gives Skanson and Hansen the creative latitude to bring melodic classical guitar mastery to folk, rock and pop songs while infusing timeless masterpieces with acoustic fun and funky rhythms. The duo describes their musical pairing as double-finger style guitar – where both simultaneously play the melody, chords, and bass line. This blending creates a sophisticated, closely-woven sound that fully expresses the song’s melody within a rich harmonious musical landscape. Their rallying cry is, “Two Guitars Can Change The World!”
