We are working on bringing more wonderful guitar music to the Kittitas Valley community and beyond! Over the pandemic, we have been rehearsing a lot of new music – both from early nineteenth century archives and new music written for the Caulkins Guitar Duo.
Tentative dates for the Guitar in the Gallery series follow. Concerts will still take place on Sundays at 2:00 pm in the acoustically-resonant atrium upstairs at Gallery One, 408 N Pearl St. in Ellensburg, WA.

To celebrate our Wedding Anniversary, we will be playing music on our early 19th century guitars at the Conservatory in Volunteer Park, Seattle, a place that has been special to us over the years. The program will include the first performance in the U.S. of a Duo by W.W. Würfel and a wonderful “Caprice” by A.H. Varlet.
We can host an audience of twenty-three. If you would like to attend, please send a check for $20 or more (proceeds will be donated to the conservatory) to POB 1676, Ellensburg, WA 98926 and we will hold a spot for you!
Trying a different camera in our green room. Our new CD, entitled Grand March, is now available for purchase and digital download! This is the first recording of the 19th-century guitar duets of Benigne Henry, which were originally published in 1818. We are playing historic instruments and employing early 19th-century improvisation.
The recording is available both as a CD or download. To order a CD, send a check to P.O. Box 1676, Ellensburg, WA 98926 for $13.50 plus shipping ($12.00 plus shipping: $1.50 in the US, $2.00 in Canada, and $2.50 elsewhere).
