Duo Rubicund aren’t what you might expect from a flute and guitar duo. Tacomans Meredith Connie on guitar and Erica Coutsouridis on flute don’t play easy-listening Romantic favorites or bland Baroque transcriptions; instead, they work with living composers (sometimes local) to explore new sounds and combinations (listen here for a YouTube sample). Connie’s originally Australian, and Coutsouridis played around the country in Army bands. The two have been playing as a duo for a few years now, collaborating with dancers (Barefoot Collective) and on their own.

Having just released a new CD at the Museum of Glass, the duo will do an “official” launch is this Saturday at Seattle’s Frye Museum, hosted by the Seattle Guitar Society.

The Frye has free entry, but get there by 1 p.m. to pick up your tickets for the 2 p.m. launch.704 Terry Ave., Seattle. www.seattleguitar.org

If you don’t feel like hiking up to Seattle, the duo will also be playing a Valentine’s-themed concert with the Guitar Orchestra of Seattle at St. John’s Episcopal Church at 7 p.m. on Feb. 12. 7701 Skansie Ave., Gig Harbor. Suggested donation $10/$5. Childcare available with donation. 253- www.gigharbororchestra.org
