The Cherry Stone Duo "Oh, there's such a lot of things to do and such a lot to be, that there's always lots of cherries on my little cherry tree" - A.A Milne

The Cherry Stone Duo

As students of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Will and Emily formed the Cherry Stone Duo in their first year and have been playing together ever since. They deliver an original and innovative sound aiming to explore the potential these two instruments can create together and share this rare chamber ensemble with audiences everywhere.

Both being keen to experiment with different genres they spend time exploring styles and creating new music; playing their own arrangements of house and pop songs as well as performing jazz numbers. Having spent many hours searching for music composed specifically for the harp and guitar, they now have a large repertoire consisting of light classical and romantic pieces.

The Cherry Stone Duo regularly perform in different venues across Birmingham such as The Museum and Arts Gallery, The ICC and Birmingham Central Synagogue. In Summer 2018 the Duet won the annual Henrietta Renié Harp and Chamber Prize.
