The North Atlantic

Combining the unique sounds of the recorder and uilleann pipes, Horsley and Williams Duo are a driving force in fusing the worlds of electro-acoustic music and the refined counterpoint of the 18th century within contemporary Australia.

Their mix of instrumentation is rarely heard, but across the duo’s five solo recordings and countless performances, including engagements throughout Ireland, Japan, Belgium and the Netherlands and most regularly at home in Melbourne.

Presented by Melbourne Reictal Centre and Horsley Williams Duo


18th- and 19th-century folk songs from North America and the British Isles, and a new work by Georgie Darvidis and Benjamin Harrison.
