Flute and Guitar

The Teves-Edwards Duo CD The Water Is Wide "Music to Soothe the Soul" is now available for your enjoyment.  It is a collection of hauntingly beautiful flute and guitar musical favorites.  It is perfect for unwinding after a stressful day, background music as your work or for a dinner party, spa relaxation ambience, or taking your mind off your worries.   Our CD includes many favorites (Danny Boy, Meditation from "Thais," The Water is Wide, Gymnopedie No. 1) plus some new pieces for the duo (the newly commissioned Morgan's Song by Charles W. Smith, a J.S. Bach Bouree, the uplifting Gossec Tambourin) and the gorgeous song, Mist Over the Lake.  There are 20 selections of sensous music...a must have for the flute and guitar lover and anyone who wishes to unwind from a stressful situation.

Bill Schlitt, Host of The Good Time Variety Hour, writes about the CD:  "I love this album!  Tacy and Chris' performances have always been delightful, but their new CD profoundly moved me.  I heard some favorites (the Londonderry Air was almost more than I could stand) while others were new to my ear.  But they have shaped this collection in careful variety.  It is a package that sings in nuance and passion.  Thank you both.  You thrilled my heart!  Listening to your CD was the best hour I have spent in a long time."

Corporate Functions

Classically Charleston's Teves-Edwards Duo or Charleston Weddig Duo can provide elegant music for your cocktail hour and then move to the dinner location for background music for the dining pleasure of your guests.  The flute and guitar duo dresses in formal attire but can, upon request, dress in colonial costume for a more " historic Charleston" experience.  The flute and piano duo is extremely versitile.  Visiting corporations truly enjoy our background music as it adds a classy Charleston touch to their event and does not overpower conversation.
