CarmenCo Trio

About Us

CarmenCo is an ensemble comprising Emily Andrews, flautist/mezzo; David Massey & Francisco Correa, guitars.

Exploiting the rich texture of 2 guitars with or without flute or voice, as well as our skills in arranging, we perform vibrant, visual, varied yet cost-effective programmes which can easily tour low-engaged communities. We perform all our music from memory and can move around and dance while playing.

“the playing is exquisite…a delightfully warm, intimate sound.”

– Susan Elkin, Lark Reviews

In 2019 we won a generous Arts Council England grant to develop and tour a new concert-play “Creating Carmen”, using our music and arrangements of music, but adding two actors, lighting, director and script writer. In 2020 we re-arranged David and Emily’s “Make Merry” Christmas Carol arrangements for the trio, allowing us to use mandolin, banjo and both steel and nylon string guitars live to bring the unique world-music style arrangements to life as a lockdown video concert for several music societies.

CarmenCo trio was formed when international solo guitarist Francisco Correa (www.franciscocorreaguitar.com) joined the Andrews Massey Duo, (formed by Emily & David in 2009). This duo has a fine pedigree: won the Tunnell Trust Award 2012-2013; were Royal Overseas League Competition semi-finalists 3 times & have appeared at Wigmore Hall, St Martin in the Fields & Kings Place & abroad in Germany, Italy & Sweden. They have made 3 CDs. One of their videos had 240,000+ YouTube views. For more information see www.andrewsmasseyduo.com
