**3PM, 2pm doors** ___ Edwin Huizinga and William Coulter are Fire & Grace, an eclectic collaboration between guitarist William Coulter and violinist Edwin Huizinga. This unique duo explores the connective musical elements of classical, folk, and contemporary traditions from around the world. Fire & Grace’s repertoire is vast, ranging from Bach to Vivaldi, tango to Celtic tunes, traditional Bulgarian to American fiddle tunes and waltzes, all played with a sense of discovery and commitment to the elements of passion and virtuosity – fire and grace – found in these diverse traditions. They recorded their third project together among the redwoods of Northern California. The result, *Alma* (Spanish for “soul”), is full of folksy charm, combining Baroque music with melodies from Argentina, Spain, Italy, Germany, and Sweden. Edwin Huizinga is a composer, a member of the JUNO-nominated indie-rock band The Wooden Sky, and has performed around the world as part of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra. William Coulter is a GRAMMY-winning and critically acclaimed guitarist who specializes in traditional guitar music, and runs a classical guitar studio in California.
