Andrew White & Brendan Power
Andrew White & Brendan PowerANDREW WHITE (Guitar/Vocals) and BRENDAN POWER (Harmonicas) became friends while living in Auckland, New Zealand. Both moved overseas and have achieved worldwide renown as brilliant solo performers and instrumentalists. The enthusiastic audience response to the duo's dynamic stage presence has now encouraged them to team up professionally.

Born in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Andrew moved to New Zealand when he was 16 and quickly gained a reputation as one of that country's top acoustic guitarists, as well as a powerful singer and composer of moving, emotive songs. His stunning and original guitar technique attracted attention from US label Narada, with whom he recorded the Grammy nominated albums Islands. In 2005 his talent was officially recognized in his adopted home of Canada when he was nominated for a Canadian East Coast Music Award. Andrew's compositions have been on recordings that have sold over one million copies and he has shared the stage with artists Clannad, Michelle Shocked and John Renbourne – to name just a few. Andrew endorses Yamaha acoustic guitars.

Since Brendan moved to Europe in 1992, he has become known worldwide as an original and innovative voice on the harmonica, especially in the Irish/Celtic music scene. In addition to ground-breaking albums such as New Irish Harmonica (1994), he has recorded with artists such as Sting, Van Morrison, James Galway, Shirley Bassey, Paul Young, Altan, Mary Black, played on many Hollywood soundtracks (such as 2008 Oscar winner Atonement), and performed in the Kremlin. Brendan is Harmonica Consultant for Suzuki Music Co. of Japan.
