Musical styles blend together Saturday in Port Ludlow

Acoustic Eidolon is set to perform at the Port Ludlow Bay Club.

PORT LUDLOW — In the mood to hear Celtic, Americana, world and flamenco musical styles? Then Port Ludlow on Saturday is the place to be.

Acoustic Eidolon, a musical duo consisting of cellist Hanna Alkire and guitjo player Joe Scott, will perform Saturday at the Port Ludlow Bay Club, 120 Spinnaker Place.

The sound of Acoustic Eidolon is described as a blend of Celtic, Americana, world and flamenco musical influences, according to a news release.

A guitjo is a custom-designed guitar with two necks and 14 strings.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m.

Open seating tickets are $25 and can be purchased at the Bay Club or ordered online at www.PortLudlow PerformingArts.com.

Alkire — growing up in a musical family — started playing the piano at age 4 and the cello at age 8, according to her biography.

She studied with G. Magyar of the Hungarian String Quartet, and in 1992 moved to Colorado where she performed in area symphony orchestras at the Boulder Bach Festival and Colorado MahlerFest.

She soon expanded beyond the classical world and started playing with rock, funk and alternative groups, becoming a founding member of the Anasazi String Quartet.

Alkire, a survivor of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, said she has made it a mission to bring joy to as many people as possible through her music, often appearing in schools, hospitals, hospices and even chemotherapy infusion rooms to inspire and help others.

At age 14, Scott was playing the guitar and the 5-string banjo, according to his biography.

By 16, Scott had won many contests at regional bluegrass festivals in Colorado.

At age 23, he attended the Guitar Institute of Technology in Hollywood, Calif., and later toured the country extensively playing guitar, banjo, mandolin and vocals with the New Christy Minstrels.

In 1985, he returned home to Colorado to start the group Wind Machine with Steve Mesple.

Wind Machine toured for the next 14 years, and released 13 critically acclaimed recordings.

It was during those years that Scott, along with help from Mesple, developed the 14-string- double-neck guitjo.
