Boyd Meets Girl

Cello & Guitar duo

An international instrumental duo of classical guitar and cello.  Cellist Laura Metcalf is American; guitarist Rupert Boyd is Australian.

Melding classical training and virtuosity with a mixed program of some classical and some pop yields a lovely program.  They arrange much of their repertoire, drawing inspiration from all genres.  The duo has performed around the world including India, Nepal, New Zealand, Australia and the U.S.  That broad experience has generated the comfort and confidence to create an engaging, conversational concert experience.
