Mosaic String Duo

Mosaic String Duo is an eclectic and dynamic ensemble which incorporates musical influences from flamenco, middle eastern, classical, and rock genres. Infectious rhythms and exotic harmonies, combined with instrumental virtuosity, complete Mosaic's signature sound. Christopher Braddock (guitar, oud, dobro, and mandolin) and Douglas Seth (Classical, Flamenco, and Electric guitars) bring it to life with sophisticated compositions, free form, improvisational style and technical precision.

Douglas Seth has performed throughout the United States, Canada, Venezuela, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary and has appeared on both TV and radio. Seth has been described as "an incredibly skilled musician..." (Morning Star Publications). His guitar works have been published through Mel Bay Publications, the largest guitar publisher in the world. Doug has studied extensively with luminaries in the classical guitar world such as Stanley Yates, Luis Zea, and James Piorkowski and has performed in numerous masterclasses with some of the world’s foremost performers and teachers. He holds a Master of Music degree from Austin Peay State University and a Bachelor of Music degree from the State University of New York at Fredonia.

Before moving to Delaware, Seth directed a thriving guitar program at Manatee School for the Arts in Palmetto, Florida, where he was also the music department chairperson. Currently, he is teaching at the Guitar Academy of Southern Delaware which Seth founded in 2010. 

Christopher Braddock has been an active member of the Delaware arts community for close to 15 years. He teaches at the Wilmington and Milford branches of the The Music School of Delaware, where he is guitar department head, director of four student ensembles, and coordinator of the school’s Cultural Crossroads Series. Chris is a past recipient of an Individual Artist Fellowship in music composition from the Delaware Division of the Arts, as well as a 2010 DDOA Opportunity Grant. A graduate of the University of Delaware, he studied with Christiaan Taggart and received his Bachelor of Music Degree in classical guitar performance. In addition, Chris has studied oud with Najib Shaheen and Dincer Dalkilic. While continuing his performing and teaching of classical guitar, he has focused increasingly in the past several years on some of its cousins - mandolin, oud, dobro, and saz - and integrating them into a variety of ensemble settings.
