Emma and Roland - Live Guitar Music


“Nothing is more beautiful than a guitar, save perhaps two.” - Frederic Chopin


Roland and Emma are a father-daughter guitar playing duo with a wide repertoire of family oriented music spanning the last 85 years.  Roland is a professional guitar teacher and Emma, a Grade 11 student, is already an experienced guitarist having played almost a decade of her life.  They perform throughout Greater Vancouver on a weekly basis, and their audiences are as diverse as the music they play.    Over the past 5 years, their performances have been well received at city festivals, community events, local markets, seniors homes, as well as private functions.


Musically, Emma and Roland cover a lot of ground:  Beatles to Bing Crosby, Jazz Standards to movie soundtracks, as well as Country, Surf, and current pop songs.   Roland:  “For me, the only thing better than hearing one guitar is…two guitars.  We listen to a lot of different music and really enjoy performing; it’s great to see people’s responses as we play songs they know and maybe haven’t heard in a while.  It’s also fun to see their faces as they see and hear all this music come out of Emma’s fingers!”


In addition to performing, they’ve just released their 3rd CD, entitled 15 Summers (2018), an eclectic mix of 15 covers spanning pop, rock, and jazz.  This follows on the heels of two well-received CDs:  Twelve Strings of Christmas (2015), and 13 Summers (2016).


If you’re wanting to be entertained by 12 strings and 4 hands, or require background music for your event or venue, please contact Roland.  He would be happy to discuss your requirements, accommodate special song requests, and work with you to make your event memorable.    He can be reached at
