ENTRADA (Spa./Por./Eng.): Entry. Gateway. Journey into unexplored territory. Armed incursion. Bald patch.
Entrada are Tessa White (violin and mandolin) and Jonathan Le Cocq (guitar).
Based in Canterbury, New Zealand and spanning styles and generations, they play a unique blend of music rooted in the Celtic tradition, but finding its own pathway through it. Intricate fingerstyle and fast-strummed guitar, new arrangements of traditional tunes, early music, rapid-fire mandolin, elegant violin solos, unclassifiable originals and cool collaborations come together in their concerts at clubs, festivals, dances and concert venues. Their first, self-titled, CD came out last year.
