About Dwayne & Duane
Steeped in the rich musical traditions of Cape Breton and Newfoundland Dwayne Côté and Duane Andrews twist their inimitable blend of Canadian East Coast Celtic and Roots music with strands of Gypsy and Jazz sounds.
Heavily influenced by the brilliance of master violinists such as Winston Fitzgerald and Jascha Heifetz and legendary Gypsy Jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt these stellar performers have been individually touring internationally for decades. In 2010 the two old friends combined forces to release their debut self-titled album which earned awards from MusicNL, Music Nova Scotia and the ECMA. Most recently they won the instrumental album category from the Independent Music Awards whose judges this year included Tom Waits, Seal and Ozzy Osbourne and have been hitting the road in support of their 2012 release 'The Empress'.
