Wind and Bow, a classical and folk duo, plans two concert appearances this week. Mary Neri King on violin, guitar and vocals and Sue Sheya on flute perform at Berryessa Gap Winery in Winters from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday and at The Artery on Friday as part of the Second Friday ArtAbout.
Sheya’s flute adds expression and color to King’s guitar and violin playing. They play folk tunes ranging from Celtic to modern, and rock tunes such as Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida” and The Beatles’ “I Will.” These pieces complement standard classical repertoire such as “Air on a G String,” by J.S. Bach and Pachelbel’s “Canon.”
Individually, King and Sheya have a lifetime of experience from coast to coast. King has performed from Connecticut to the Bay Area, and locally with the Flat Land String Band, the Solano Symphony and Merritt College Symphony. She has also been a member of vocal groups such as Uptown Sound, and the Ray Zac jazz trio.
Sheya has been a freelance flutist in a variety of genres, groups and orchestras since becoming a professional musician as a teenager. She recently appeared on “Good Day Sacramento” and as part of the Music at Noon Concert Series in Sacramento.
She is the principal flutist for the Camellia Symphony, which will perform Sept. 24 and 25 at The Center, 2300 Sierra Blvd. in Sacramento. Sheya also will perform with classical guitarist Elizabeth Busch on Nov. 5 as part of the Evening at Vets’ Concert Series in Davis.
