For musical versatility, the guitar presents many options, both as a solo instrument or playing with others. In addition to a vast traditional repertoire, guitarists have a wealth of music transcribed for their instrument. For those interested in a more popular musical style, Continuo Music can provide guitarists fluent in Latin American, Blues, Rock, Gospel, Ragtime and Reggae. Adding the bass to the flute and guitar is a versatile trio which can play classical music for the ceremony, and cross over to jazz standards for the cocktail hour. Musical examples can be heard at Continuo.net
In a wedding ceremony, your guests will first be serenaded with your choice of beautiful music during the prelude. The procession might be an arrangement of a traditional trumpet tune. During the ceremony, a favorite song (popular or religious) might be played between readings. At the ceremony's end, a joyous tune, traditional or contemporary can escort the wedding party and guests to the day’s next event.
For greater expressiveness, a popular option with guitar is to add a solo instrument. Flute and guitar is a particularly attractive, and our most frequently requested, duo.
Amplification is available, and sometimes necessary, especially if the ceremony is outdoors
Continuo Music has provided live music for weddings and other events for many years. In addition to our web site, more Flute and Guitar selections can be heard at www.bairdguitar.com
