Formed in 1989, by Mickey Jones and Jeremy Mayne, the New Mexico Guitar Duo has been guided by a strong friendship, artistic integrity, and a desire to perform great music with virtuosity, musicianship and a refined sense of ensemble. Their programs include mainstays from the duo repertoire, from Baroque masterpieces to evocative contemporary works, as well as their own innovative transcriptions.
The New Mexico Guitar Duo has performed for the Keller Hall Faculty Series, the Grinnell College Performing Arts Series, the Luna County Arts Council, the Albuquerque Classical Guitar Society, Albuquerque Academy, St. John’s Summer Concert Series, and the 18th Annual Summer Guitar Workshop. Most recently, the duo has performed at the New Mexico Classical Guitar Festival and given a premier performance of Concertomaggio by Roland Dyens with the Albuquerque Academy Chamber Players. In 2012, the New Mexico Guitar Duo served as Artists in Residence at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado.
“With an intangible element of magic at every performance, the New Mexico Guitar Duo is breathtakingly virtuosic. Their riveting style combined with their exquisite musicianship makes this an ensemble experience not to be missed.”-John Truitt, Composer and Guitarist
