Boland Dowdall Flute & Guitar Duo

Dedicated to performing little-known 19th-century music on period flutes and guitars, and to commissioning and premiering new works. Frequent collaborations expand the ensemble to include strings and winds. 

This site is dedicated to sharing our repertoire and concert programs, pointing to compact disc recordings, linking to live concerts via youtube, and perhaps inspiring others with our innovative projects. We share our enthusiasm for both early music (and the subtle beauty of the 19th-century instruments that express this music) alongside more than 50 marvelous new works written for us.
