Stoke Newington Guitar Festival welcomes the Vickers Bovey Duo, an exceptional young guitar duo from the Stoke Newington area for our Saturday evening concert.

Julian and Dan first met studying at Birmingham Conservatoire where they both received First Class Honours and the Principals Prize, continuing their studies with a joint Masters at the Royal Academy of Music, London, graduating with Distinctionand the Performance Diploma in July 2016.

Winners of multiple awards, the duo have recently been selected for the Worshipful Company of Musicians Maisie Lewis Prize, the Tillett Trust Young Artist Platform, which saw them make their Wigmore Hall debut in February 2017, the 2017 Park Lane Group concert series at St Johns Smith Square and the Concordia Foundation Young Artist Scheme. In 2016 they won the Royal Academy of Musics Club Prize, the most prestigious competition at the Academy and are prize winners at the 2017 Guitar Foundation of Americas International Ensemble Competition in Los Angeles and the 2018 International Festival de Guitarra Braga Ensemble Competition in Portugal.

The duo have been featured on BBC Radio 3s In Tune and Late Junction and are past recipients of the International Guitar Foundation Young Artist Platform, the Countess of Munster and Help Musicians UK Awards and have performed extensively internationally and around the UK, including at Wigmore Hall, St. James Piccadilly, St. Johns Smith Square, Courtauld Gallery, Kings Place (London Guitar Festival), The Sage (North-East Guitar Festival), Bath Guitar Festival, Shrewsbury Guitar Festival and Colston Hall (Bristol).

United by a love of new and contemporary music, the duo have commissioned and premiered numerous works, including Michael Finnissys Normal Deviates, Joe Cutlers Everyday Music and Mario Ferraros On That Old Oak by the Roadside. The duo also have a long term collaboration with Ryan Probert, whose transfixing large scale works Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji, Eight Views of the Four Seasons and The Fields Where Silence Has Lease (BBC commission) have been performed over thirty times, in concert halls, libraries, factories and schools. The complete set of Ryans Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji formed the duos debut CD, released in April 2016.
