The Duellists


***There are 2 artists that go under the moniker "The Duellists"*** The Duellists, a trio of Nigel Eaton, Cliff Stapleton & Chris Walshaw, play newly written dance music inspired from, and rooted in, the English and French traditions. With bagpipes and hurdy-gurdies, they provide driving dance music and bewitching rhythms underpinned by the exciting and primitive combination of melody and drones. Nigel Eaton originally played piano and 'cello, moving to the hurdy-gurdy when his father, Christopher Eaton, started to make them in 1981. Read more on Last.fm
***There are 2 artists that go under the moniker "The Duellists"*** The Duellists, a trio of Nigel Eaton, Cliff Stapleton & Chris Walshaw, play newly written dance music inspired from, and rooted in, the English and French traditions. With bagpipes and hurdy-gurdies, they provide driving dance music and bewitching rhythms underpinned by the exciting and primitive combination of melody and drones. Nigel Eaton originally played piano and 'cello, moving to the hurdy-gurdy when his father, Christopher Eaton, started to make them in 1981. In 1985 he joined the groups Blowzabella and Ancient Beatbox with whom he has toured extensively in Britain, Europe and South America and recorded six albums. He also appears on numerous records with artists ranging from Robert Plant, Scott Walker and Marc Almond to The Philharmonia and The New London Consort, and soundtracks for films such as Aliens and The Name of the Rose.

Nigel has recently returned from a year long world tour with Robert Plant and Jimmy Page (of Led Zeppelin) and is currently one half of Whirling Pope Joan with Julie Murphy. From his years with Blowzabella and The Drones, Cliff Stapleton, will be known to many as a fine hurdy-gurdy player. Since leaving them Cliff has established himself in the world of theatre and puppet theatre as a composer and musician. He currently works with Banyan Theatre Company and recently appeared in their production of Baba Yaga Bony Legs at the Leicester Haymarket. However, his inventive tune writing (the pen that brought you 'Man in a Brown Hat') and musicianship are not lost to the roots music lovers, for he can also be seen playing with Chris Wood and Andy Cutting in the Waltzer. Chris Walshaw, on the pipes, has a long history of playing in dance bands including Edinburgh's Ceilidh Collective and Culture Shock and has occasionally guested with Chris Wood, Andy Cutting and Cliff in the Waltzer.

In addition he has worked with Jean-Pierre Rasle on productions of his show Cornemusiques for both Radio 3 and on stage at St Chartier and the Purcell Room. Currently he also plays with the dynamic English ceilidh band Stocai. Together they make up The Duellists. Most of their material is newly written - much of it by themselves - and they are available for dances, concerts and bagpipe and hurdy-gurdy workshops. The Duellists nascono a Napoli nel settembre 2007,comune denominatore la passione per gli IRON MAIDEN, che spinge Antonio “Panzer”Agrillo(batteria) e Fabio”Matrix” Fasciglione(chitarra) alla estenuante ricerca di componenti. Al progetto The Duellists si uniscono Luca “Mr X”Galiero alla chitarra ed Enzo “O Metall”Turitto alla voce.

Anche senza bassista,la band comincia a selezionare songs x una set list partendo dai cavalli di battaglia della band inglese tra i quali spiccano "Hallowed Be Thy Name","The Number Of The Beast","Phantom Of The Opera" e ovviamente "Iron Maiden"…. Dopo vari tentativi entra in formazione Fabio”The Crow” Caputo,bassista proveniente da esperienze hard/rock and heavy,anch’egli appassionato del metal anni 80. A causa di problemi logistici, si interrompe la collaborazione con Luca Galiero,al quale subentra da subito Francesco”The Mighty” Russo,chitarrista giovane, pieno di entusiasmo e voglia di fare….Successivamente subentra Vincenzo"Cienzo" Giovengo alla terza chitarra,per completare l'evoluzione della band inglese. Nel giugno 2008 la band decide di rimpiazzare la due chitarre rappresentate da Mighty e Cienzo con un nuovo elemento proveniente da esperienze heavy e power, Pasquale "Panguo", con buone connotazioni musicale e tecniche. All’occorrenza collaborerà con noi Marco”Kenosys” Di Bonito alle tastiere e synth ma ora basta chiacchiere……THE DUELLISTS will pierce your ass!!!!!!!!!!!! Up the irons!!! Read more on Last.fm.
