Details

Ziggy & Miles Johnston inject music with contagious energy and inimitable zeal.

Internationally award-winning guitar brothers Ziggy & Miles Johnston are renowned for passionate performances of diverse repertoire – crisscrossing the standard classical guitar canon with music from Australia, Spain and Latin America, and jazz influenced works.

Be transported into a night of magic and surprises as brothers Ziggy & Miles Johnston trot the globe to share tales of mysticism and passion from the guitar. From Spain to India to Japan and France, musical treasures await. Rodrigo’s Tonadilla is redolent with the theatricality of Spanish song, while Carlo Domeniconi’s Prana draws upon Indian music and Hindu spiritualism. Andrew York’s Sanzen-in traces his journey to a temple in Kyoto, Japan, and Francis Kleynjans’s Four Movements is a gem in the French impressionistic style. The brothers dish out wonder at every twist and turn.
