The Oxley – Meier Guitar project are delighted to be performing at the Normansfield Theatre as part of their spring 2018 UK tour. This gig will be a part of their third extensive tour (since Feb ’ 17) promoting their new double-album, ‘The Colours Of Time’ – a development from their previous release, ‘Chasing Tales’.
On both of these albums, Oxley and Meier shared writing duties throughout, bringing to the fore their diverse influences and interests in ‘orchestrating’ various guitars. When playing live, they aim to recreate their broad palette of sounds, bringing at least ten differing guitars with them (nylon 7-string, steel string, fretless, 11-string fretless, sitar-guitar, 12 string, etc.).
Having clocked up hundreds of concerts together throughout the UK and Europe over the last five years, they perform with an almost uncanny empathy in their interplay. Expect lush and scintillating soundscapes ranging from Turkey to Brazil!

“these two resourceful maestros reach out to a wide audience” – The Guardian ★★★★
