Harkness Herriott Duo
Guitarist Sean Harkness and trumpet/flugel hornist Mike Herriott are H2: a jazz duo with elegant simplicity. For jazz fans of all types, their quick-paced grooves and soulful reveries feature the special interplay between two masters of their chosen instruments.

Their critically acclaimed, award winning recordings “Flights Vol. 1” and “Home for the Holidays” are available everywhere online.

"Mike Herriott and Sean Harkness cleverly use their friendship as an additional instrument in their recording 'Flights’ ...It's a perfect musical pairing like Cabernet and steak that you can taste for yourself.”
- Tim Tamashiro, CBC

"...it is clear that guitarist Sean Harkness and flugelhornist Mike Herriott belong on stage or in the studio together—you can cut the chemistry with a knife. Both of them put beauty and feeling first. These two musicians have a great time, and you can tell how much they are in love with the music they play, and playing with each other. You will be too - it is contagious.

A technical virtuoso who's Joe Pass / Tommy Emmanuel fingerstyle approach is always in service to telling a story or creating a feeling within the song; [Harkness] transcends many genres and can touch listeners of many backgrounds.

Herriott shares values with Harkness, is extremely lyrical, and has a beautiful tone. He has a graceful and easy approach to time, dancing on the beat with his gorgeous lines. Both players’ compositions create feelings and moods that you will want to revisit again and again.”

"Something clicked between the two as they know how to dance around each other in a sprightly fashion that underplays the vibe and smarts running between them. A zesty, upbeat combo that works well throughout, ...the results really work.”
- Chris Spector, Editor and Publisher, Midwest Record
