Jan Boland (b. 1944)
Flutist Jan Boland and guitarist John Dowdall were each awarded a prestigious Solo Recitalist Fellowship by the National Endowment for the Arts for the 1993-1996 concert seasons. Together they tour internationally as the Boland-Dowdall Duo, playing concerts of 19th-century salon music on period instruments. They have appeared in concert as featured artists at California Summer Arts, the Magnano Festival (Italy) and Tage Alte Musik (Regensberg, Germany). The duo's award-winning compact discs of 19th-century music appear on the Koch International Classics and Titanic Record labels.
