Formed by music alumni of Huddersfield University, The Lockwood Duo are a vocal/piano ensemble made up of classically-trained musicians, Anna Battersby and Henning Walker. With a specialism in versatility, the duo perform a wide range of songs: from Frankie Valli to The Killers, The Lockwood Duo can handle whatever song you require, with a smile and great energy to keep all listeners dancing all night long!
Both Anna and Henning have performed from a very young age. Henning, having played organ and piano since childhood, went to university as a brass player in order to further his lesser inst ... rument and upon graduation became a music teacher for Kirklees and Calderdale schools and colleges, where he regularly accompanies his students. During his degree, he accompanied peers in rehearsals and the university lunchtime concert series and was part of the championship section and very highly regarded brass band, The Yorkshire Imperial band, showing his incredible musicianship. Anna has experimented stylistically and subsequently can handle almost any vocal style, from pop to opera, studying with the world-class soprano Rachel Nicholls. Taking lead parts in school productions and frequently being asked to perform at termly award ceremonies when at school, university studies allowed Anna a further platform to continue developing her vocal knowledge. Like Henning, Anna has too played in brass bands throughout her life, initially on cornet and later baritone horn, demonstrating her sight-reading abilities and musicianship.
Performing an array of covers spanning from patriotic war-time songs and Elvis Presley, through the rock and ballad anthems of the 70s and 80s to the Britpop culture and present day slows melodies, The Lockwood Duo’s sophisticated keyboard system allows for accurate grand piano tones and self-made backings. As a result of the instrumental availabilities the duo can be very flexible with their style, performing different arrangements of the same song, thus demonstrating their suitability for creating both relaxed and party atmospheres, which blends seamlessly with their friendly, high energy but professional personalities!
In August 2019, The Lockwood Duo will be performing onboard the P&O Ferry, The Pride of Bruges. After this however the duo are available for work and are seeking international contracts commencing from September 3rd 2019 as they have no commitments to the UK after this date.
