Listen: Cochran & McAllister Guitar Duo

 Guitarists Matthew Cochran and Matthew McAllister perform together.

The international guitar duo gave a recital of music by Bach, Glass, Metheny and more at Interlochen's Dendrinos Chapel.

Scottish guitarist Matthew McAllister and American guitarist Matthew Cochran each had successful solo careers before coming together as a duo in 2023.

They premiered this duo project earlier this year with tours in Scotland and the United States, including right here in northern Michigan with stops in Interlochen's Dendrinos Chapel and Recital Hall and Frankfort's Garden Theater.
