One of Europe’s best jazz vocalists, Danish Sinne Eeg, has invited the American super guitarist Peter Sprague to tour Europe with her. They both promise a concert in which they intermingle their sublime, technical and musical skills, and where almost everything is possible for the virtuoso duo. Eeg and Sprague take the audience into their unique, musical playground, where there are neither fences, supervision nor ‘prohibited’ signs. The two musicians’ cooperation began in 2015 during one of Sinne Eeg’s stays in the United States. Since then, they have performed together several times during Eeg’s musical tours over there, and in the autumn of 2018, they first appeared as a duo on a tour in Denmark.
Peter Sprague has recorded and toured with a number of great jazz icons such as Chick Corea, Dianne Reeves, Sergio Mendes, Hubert Laws and David Benoit. His musical inspiration does not come from any particular musical genre. He points out guitarists Pat Metheny and Jimi Hendrix as some of his greatest heroes, so it may not come as a surprise that Sprague has played everything from pop and latin jazz to classical and, of course, jazz.
Sinne Eeg is known and respected throughout the world. With frequent tours and album releases in Denmark, USA, France, China and Japan she has a large and steadily growing fan base. She has been honoured with many awards in both Denmark and abroad, including the Ben Webster Prize, Danish Radio Jazz Prize, Album of the Year in Jazz Special, four Danish Music Awards and Queen Ingrid’s Honorary Award.
