Guy Van Duser and Bily Novick (Julie Dougherty opens!)
"Elegant."  "Riveting." "Soulful." "Classic mastery." These are a few of the terms that have been used to describe the unique and stunning swing-jazz music of acoustic  guitarist Guy Van Duser and clarinetist Billy Novick.

Together as a duo for more than thirty years- longer than most marriages- Guy and Billy have performed  in concerts, clubs and festivals all over North America and Europe. You also  may have heard  them  as frequent guests of the Prairie Home Companion show,  NPR's All Things Considered, or on one one the numerous film and television soundtracks they have been featured on.

And like a good marriage, their music has wed together two perfectly suited musical personalities. Their music is based around Guy's innovative finger-style guitar wizardry, and his uncanny ability to play bass lines, chords and melodies all at the same time. With his  daring imagination, breathtaking technique,  and his  wonderful  musicality, Guy has become an inspiration for guitarists all over the world.

Novick's ever-inventive and soulful clarinet playing  provides the ideal complement to Guy's guitar. With his vast knowledge of the classic jazz era, his dazzling improvising skills, and his entertaining vocals, Novick is able to both add a melodic and dynamic spark to Guy's guitar . Their music sounds fresh and original, yet is also deeply rooted in the rich legacy of the classic jazz age. The duo can play any piece from their huge repertoire-  an obscure Ellington tune, a  Gershwin classic, a complex Jelly Roll Morton arrangement, or perhaps one of the their originals- and immediately have it sound their own.

And, my,  how they swing! The two of them together can create a pulse as driving as any big band.  They have a musical telepathy and understanding that has  been honed by more than twenty-five years of playing together, a rhythmic drive that doesn't quit and  a  thorough mastery of their instruments.  Add to all of this their relaxed and engaging stage manner, and you will be treated to a joyously entertaining and musically enchanting show that, indeed, has already stood the test of time.

"Riveting echoes of an earlier jazz era..."

Washington Post

Opener: JULIE DOUGHERTY

"I've been singing since the mid-sixties, starting with my sister, Kathy, performing folk music at coffeehouses in the Boston area, such as the Unicorn Coffeehouse and the King's Rook (we were lucky enough to open up several times for the Kingston Trio in the 70's) through the years since then, I've travelled much of the country singing Irish music, original folk-rock music, country-rock music in the 80's, and have made several trips to Nashville, where I placed two original songs with two major publishing firms and almost moved there in the early 90's....but my roots are in New England! I also hosted a songwriting cable TV show, called Songwriters In The Round for three years, on which we featured many fine songwriters including Noel Paul Stookey, Chris Smither, and Al Kooper, to name just a few.

"I spent a year and a half writing and performing in an original funk band in the Boston area, the Boston Horns and also explored some jazz and blues combinations. I really love all kinds of music and love singing as many styles as I can. I'm very lucky to have had plenty of work over the years and have recorded a couple of my own CD's along the way
