A virtuoso partnership of "the doyenne of Irish harpers" (Scotland on Sunday) and "one of the UK's most staggering and influential acoustic guitarists" (fROOTS). Máire is a five-time All Ireland harpist.

"music of fire and brilliance from the high-wire act in traditional music"The Irish Times

Rooted but eclectic, emotional but adventurous: this duo brings us a breathtaking blend of traditional Irish music, hot jazz, bluegrass and baroque, coupled with striking new compositions and Chris's delightfully subversive wit.

"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 (Ireland)
