Stylish and distinctive, the dynamic string duo fuse passion and fire with romantic delicacy. Their repertoire - which includes well known classical pieces, jazz, Brazilian choro, a smattering of French chanson and popular music.

Karen De Nardi and Mike Bevan have both performed locally and internationally in concerts and venues ranging from jazz clubs to music festivals.

Their next project is to record an album that reflects their desire to perform challenging and beautiful music and that is a delight to both play and listen to, in ethically nourished environments around South Australia.
