Event Summary

This internationally renowned, critically acclaimed harp and guitar duo blends gorgeous traditional Celtic music, hot jazz, bluegrass and baroque with a delightful stage presence and a charming line in amusing, informative and anecdotal patter.
Chris, England’s premier flatpicking guitarist and Maire “The greatest Celtic Harpist of our time” (LIVE IRELAND) have taken their unique musical vision to 22 countries, giving almost 2000 concerts from the tiniest of historic churches in England, Germany and Italy to palaces in Kyoto and Istanbul, London’s Barbican, Sydney's Town Hall and the Philharmonie in Cologne.
“This celebrated duo took the place by storm. Stately Carolan tunes, jazzy Django-ish numbers, dazzling Doc Watson style flat picking fliers, driving Irish dance tunes - this pair can nonchalantly do the lot. Guitar players applauded and went sadly home to burn their instruments!” The Belfast Telegraph
'Dazzling virtuosity... delightful.' The Telegraph ★★★★ 'Brilliant, innovative harping and guitar-playing of astonishing virtuosity and versatility.' Songlines Magazine ★★★★ Scotland On Sunday ★★★★ Maverick Magazine ★★★★ Irish Times.
