Their gigs in the gardens of key and frontline workers throughout the pandemic brought joy to thousands and widespread acclaim. Now the guitarists duo bring their exhilarating show to the Black Box.

Ben Bruant and Will Cashel are duo – playing ‘songs you know in ways you probably don’t’ in a style fusing flamenco, pop and classical music.

They met and formed duo in 2011 while studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Together the band has recorded five albums and two EPs and performed to audiences including British and European royalty and at Liverpool Philharmonic, BBC Good Food Festival, G-Live, Folk on the Dock, Goodwood and the F1 Grand Prix. Their music is featured regularly on Scala Radio and recently made its debut on BBC Radio 2.

When lockdown began in March 2020, duo began live streaming gigs which evolved into free weekly performances in the gardens of nominated key and frontline workers to thank them for their amazing work during the pandemic. These ‘Gigs In Your Garden’ became a huge hit and were featured on BBC Breakfast, Sky News, Jeremy Vine on 5 and in The Times, Mail on Sunday and Evening Standard.

‘Gig In Your Garden’ the album, inspired by the music played at these events, was released on Demon Records in February 2021. The gigs continued weekly until July 2021 – reaching 70 in total – and are taking place monthly from now on.
