“WireWood caught our attention from the very beginning. This dynamic duo ‘unzips’ popular songs, instead focusing on the balance of rhythm and sound, always bringing a sense of
style and newness to the stage,” says TEDxGreenville 2014 program team member, Reece Lyerly.
This Greenville-based cello and guitar duo is the musical collaboration of cellist Laura Koelle Pyle, and guitarist Keith Groover. Laura and Keith teach by day and play music the rest of the time, mostly their instrumental interpretations of everything from Frank Sinatra ballads to Rock’s Metallica and the ever-popular Beatles.
Keith is the guitar professor at North Greenville College and Laura is the cello professor at Clemson University. She also plays with the Brevard, Hendersonville and Spartanburg Philharmonic orchestras. Keith is also music director at Grace Presbyterian Church in Spartanburg.
WireWood’s TEDxGreenville 2014: Unzipped performance will ‘unzip’ your perceptions of how the cello and guitar are used.
