We are a Jazz Duet consisting of harp/guitar. Specializing in Jazz standards and popular music. Private parties and concerts!
A classically trained harpist and a jazz guitarist is not your normal duo, however Michelle Cobley and Dan Keller create tasteful and unique arrangements of beloved jazz standards, traditionals, pop tunes, originals and classical music. The duet can provide a classy ambiance as a backdrop to events and occasions, as well as captivate an audience in a concert or show setting.
Michelle, originally from Cary, NC, graduated from Berkelee College of Music in Boston, MA, where she was was introduced to hundreds of different styles of music which she can easily adapt to her harp. She plays melodies written for horn sections with ease and proficiency. Dan studied with Marc Yaxley in Brevard, NC, and has performed countless gigs in the eastern U.S. His arrangements are his forte, but he also performs a broad range of styles. However, an insatiable love for jazz has helped him create a personal voice in the jazz guitar world, while maitaining the traditional elements.
