PORTLAND —

Acoustic Eidolon, featuring Joe Scott on double neck guitjo and Hannah Alkire on cello are from Colorado and have performed throughout the U.S., Europe, Australia and Canada. Their original sound is created by the mixing of their diverse musical backgrounds and their unusual instrumentation including the one-of-a-kind double neck guitjo, an instrument of Scott’s own design. The double-neck guitjo has 14 strings and Joe has developed his own style and technique, playing both necks simultaneously. Classically-trained cellist Alkire is recognized internationally for her stunning tone and emotional, impeccable playing and for taking the cello places it’s never been before.
