Samford University's School of the Arts

Godwin-Thompson Duo Nov. 10. This second event in the university's 2009-2010
Davis Architects Guest Artists Series will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Samford's

Duo performs nationally, has recorded two critically acclaimed albums and
has been featured on National Public Radio and on television in the US and
abroad. In addition to their duo work and individual performances and projects,

graduation as the university's first guitar performance major.
