David Sinclair & Keith Bennett
Acoustic Guitars and Harmonicas Get Eccentric
Celebrating Sinclair’s recent induction into the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame, this highly accomplished Vancouver duo brings its unique music to Frankie’s for the first time. Part big band, part blues, roots, classical and gypsy jazz, their unconventional repertoire weaves from Benny Goodman to Irving Berlin to Jimi Hendrix to originals. Sinclair coaxes more sounds out of an acoustic guitar than should be possible, Bennett’s harmonica playing is brilliantly nuanced and expressive, and both perform surprising instrumental multi-tasking. Vocal harmonies a la Everly Brothers round out a thoroughly enjoyable evening of music.
