Hello! We are Neil & Tamara Caulkins, classical guitar duo. We have been playing guitar duets together for over two decades. You can find our first (and so far only) CD here.
After completing our masters degrees in music at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro, we studied guitar with Jose Luis Rodrigo at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Madrid, Spain. We were also awarded scholarships from the Spanish government to study at two international music festivals: Musica en Compostela (in Santiago de Compostela) and the Manuel de Falla festival (in Granada).
Our concert touring included performances at the American Institute of Guitar (New York City), Oregon State University, the University of Miami, the Columbia Gorge Arts Council, The Brewery Arts Center (Carson City, NV), Orangeburg Arts Council (SC), Calgary Classical Guitar Society (Canada), Camerata Musica (Salem Oregon), Wofford College (Spartenburg, SC), St. Mary’s College (Raleigh, NC), and Reed College (Portland, OR).
We are currently Artists-in-Residence at Gallery One in Ellensburg, Washington, where we sponsor the Guitar in the Gallery series of concerts in the magical Eveleth Green Gallery.
