This is a rare opportunity to hear the classical guitars of Selina Madeley and Phillip Thorne in harmony again. The last time they played in Penicuik was 2006 so a return is long overdue. They have known each other and played together for many years to great critical acclaim.  Both are respected teachers and committed to increasing classical repertoire for the guitar. Phillip Thorne is guitar director for the Royal Scottish Conservatoire in Glasgow.
