Centurion and the Monk
Flute and Guitar
WHY DID WE CHOOSE CENTURION AND THE MONK?
Because of public demand on Social Media.
Centurion and the Monk came to being in 2017 when following a rehearsal, 2 composers went for a walk and decided to go live on Facebook performing in the Hampshire woodland with just a flute and acoustic guitar. By the end of the short session, they had attracted not just a huge amount of facebook comments but also a small crowd of people enjoying their afternoon walk. Andrew Stamp ( Centurion ) and Elliott Frisby ( Monk ) decided to offer their elegant sound to functions and which they now enjoy playing regularly.
