“The chords they strike are not only on their instruments, but in the hearts of us all”. Gloria Gaither
Jon and Ben Burchfield make music that inspires the soul. Combining such styles as Classical, Jazz and Smoky Mountain Gospel, along with a bit of Irish flavoring, this unique duo from Nashville, Tennessee, mesmerizes audiences of all ages.
Jon is a master of Classical Guitar, while Ben performs with an instrument called the Mallet Kat, which can be described as a midi-marimba. Played with either mallets or hands, the Mallet Kat has unlimited sounds ranging anywhere from percussion to orchestral. When these two instruments are played together, the dynamic arrangements of hymns and praise songs become new and exciting!
Their cd, “The Passion” is very emotional and quite dramatic in character. Someone once wrote in and said: “It’s not just music, it’s talking with God in a language He created.”
“When words alone cannot describe the passion, the heart, or the love of Christ, music becomes an expression of that love”.
