Acoustic Eidolon is manned by Hannah Alkire, cellist and Joe Scott, guitarist. They have combined their musical talents to create an exciting new acoustic instrumental sound. Joe plays an instrument he invented: the double-neck guitjo, a custom acoustic guitar with two necks, built exclusively for him. This one-of-a-kind instrument has incredible range and tonal qualities, sounding at times like a piano, dulcimer or beautiful harp.
On several tours Acoustic Eidolon have been joined by Thomas Loefke, adding his Celtic Harp to the magical sound of Acoustic Eidolon.
Since 1984 Thomas has toured across Europe, Canada and the USA. He has received numerous international prizes. “People are listening to quiet haunting music again,” says Thomas. “It’s amazing how the sound of the harp takes the speed out of everyday life and brings you back to a sort of tingling slowness.
