Karlijn Langendijk

Karlijn Langendijk was born in 1995 and grew up in Uitgeest, The Netherlands. Surrounded by acoustic guitar music since birth, she started playing the guitar at the age of 13 inspired by her father. Her music is not just happy or sad – she composes all the intricate shades of emotions that people feel really intensely but cannot communicate in words. As a guitarist & composer, she is fascinated by all kinds of different music genres and she mixes all these together into a completely unique style.

She has shared the stage with musicians like Tommy Emmanuel and Peter Finger, and has toured across Europe, China, Japan and India. Together with acoustic guitarist Tim Urbanus, she released her debut duo album “Leap of Faith” in 2015 at the renowned label “Acoustic Music Records”. In November 2015 she won the first prize and the audience prize at the “SAI Acoustic Guitar Competition” in the Czech Republic. She played in the finals of the “Acoustic Guitarist of the Year 2018” competition in London. She was placed 6th in the Top 10 of “Acoustic Guitarist of the Year 2020” by MusicRadar.

In 2017 Karlijn graduated from the Conservatory in Utrecht (NL) and two years later she finished her Master of Music in “Acoustic Guitar” at the Hochschule für Musik in Dresden (DE), where she received lessons from well-respected musicians like Thomas Fellow, Reentko Dirks and Stephan Bormann.

Her solo EP “Luna” was released in July 2017 and is an engaging and diverse mix from her solo repertoire that she is playing on tour regularly.
In 2018 she cofounded MusiSHEans – a community to support and empower female musicians who should be heard for their music and not be judged on their looks or sex appeal. In November 2019 she will be part of the MusiSHEans Announcement Tour through Europe.
In December 2019 she released her new duo guitar album “MERAKI” together with Czech guitarist Ladislav Pazdera, which consists of virtuoso rhythmical pieces and atmospherical ballads.

Dustin Furlow

Dustin Furlow is an award-winning singer/songwriter/guitarist whose playing and songwriting reflect a clear influence of today’s contemporary-folk artists. With comparisons to songwriters such as Ray LaMontagne and virtuoso guitar-players like Tommy Emmanuel, Furlow eventually carved out a sound that became easily distinguishable by it’s marriage of complex guitar work and warm, home-spun lyrics. From the haunting melodies in “Evergreen” to the foot-tapping groove of “Cherokee Lake” Dustin is an ambassador of dynamic control on stage. In 2019 he played over 200 shows, many with Harp-guitarist and International Fingerstyle-Guitar Champion Matt Thomas.

In April 2021 Dustin was announced as the winner of Scottish luthier Taran Guitars’ “Young Player Bursary” award.

In February 2017, he received the Veer Magazine Music Award for “Best Acoustic/Folk Artist” in the Southeastern Virginia area. That year he also recieved nominations for “Song of the Year” (The Garden), and “Album of the Year” (The Sound That You Call Home).

In 2016, Furlow released the full-length “The Sound That You Call Home”, which has enjoyed airplay on NPR radio’s “Acoustic Highway”, “Hunter at Sunrise”, and “Out of the Box” and recieved the title of “Album of the Year” by Barry Graham of NPR’s “Acoustic Highway”.

A year later Furlow went on to release the EP “Solo”, which was a live-in-studio project recorded by Rob Ulsh at Master Sound Studios (Justin Timberlake, Depeche Mode, Gwen Stefani) in Virginia Beach. (2017)

Playing just over 244 shows in 2017, he is almost always engaged in recording, writing, or performing and is currently producing his third album, “Woodscapes” with Kim Person (Tommy Emmanuel, Stephen Bennett, Matt Thomas). – November 2018

“Dustin Furlow is developing a reputation as one of the best acoustic guitarists in Hampton Roads, and his disc “The Sound That You Call Home” does nothing to dissuade that notion.”

— Mike Holtzclaw – The Daily Press

“Incredible talent – playing every venue there is from NorVa to the smallest local cafes – the emerging acoustic talent in the area.”
