An internationally recognized 6 and 12-string guitarist, composer, recording artist, performer, and clinician for Taylor Guitars, Proctor has produced several books and videos that teach his techniques and compositions for solo guitar, and writes extensively for the guitar press.

Joe Scott and Hannah Alkire joined forces on the music scene in 1998. This confluence of two gifted musicians has resulted in the internationally acclaimed duo, Acoustic Eidolon.

Joe Scott performs on a unique, custom designed double-neck guitjo, a banjo/guitar combination created exclusively by Joe and deemed by USA Today as “a beautiful harp-like sounding instrument…. like nothing they’ve ever heard before.” The double-neck guitjo has 14 strings. Joe can play both necks simultaneously, a technique he developed over time which continues to awe his peers as well as Acoustic Eidolon’s audiences.

Hannah Alkire was classically trained on the cello. She studied with G. Magyar of the Hungarian String Quartet and has won accolades worldwide for her exquisite tone and mesmerizing emotion she puts into each performance. Her inquisitive nature has prompted her to take her cello playing into uncharted territories, risky moves that have continued her reputation as a tour-de-force in cello performance.
