The RAZ Duo (Andre Krengel Roland Krause) are two brilliant German virtuoso guitarists who first met some 20 or so years ago.
Their musical adventures together took them throughout Europe and on to Miami, Florida performing in festivals, jazz clubs, theatres and art centres.
In 1999 each went his separate way from Florida. André’s solo tours then as now take him around and around the world – in 2015/2016 he played almost 100 concerts in the US, Canada, UK, Poland, Germany, Italy and Austria.
He has received cultural awards and worked with world-class artists such as Carles Benavent, Domingo Patricio, Rod Stewart, Rafael Cortes.
In 2016, André toured the UK, Moldova and Bulgaria with Lulo Reinhardt (also a fabulously talented guitarist). Roland, meanwhile, after leaving Florida went to California, then Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean, Spain and Asia, where he spent many years performing in clubs, luxury hotels and resorts and undertook projects with musicians like Ber Ortoli (Les Negresses Vertes) and gypsy swing guitarists.
Re-united since 2016, Andre and Roland have developed into a really exciting duo with great music while exuding sheer, brilliant joie de vivre, as they look back on their many adventures but with an eye on what the future holds.
Join Andre and Roland on their musical travels and allow yourself to fall under their spell at The Grey Horse on Friday, May 10 (7.30pm).
This is the start of one of a number of regular quality musical events due to be held at The Grey Horse as owner Paul Ng has linked with John Barrow, the organiser of the popular Acoustic Music Centre on The Fringe.
The function suite can also be used for other events including birthday parties, anniversaries, special presentations and funerals. We have a menu to suit all occasions. The extensive buffet is £9.95 a person and it can be tailor-made by chef to suit individual customers and we are acutely aware of allergies.
The suite can seat 90 people and has a built-in sound system.
The space, which has already been booked by a number of local people including Lovedale Ladies, a group of women who live locally and get together once a year for a special meal, can also be used by local groups and associations for annual or regular meetings. Once again, the capacity is 90 people.
So, if you are interested in using the function suite, please contact Paul or Jane on 0131 449 2888 for further details or to book an appointment to see around the facility.
We look forward to hearing from you.
