Chris is a “brilliant English master of the acoustic guitar” (Daily Telegraph), a “dazzling player” (Acoustic Guitar) whose work is “nothing short of brilliant” (Dirty Linen).

Máire is one of Ireland’s most influential traditional musicians, described by the late Derek Bell of the Chieftains as “the most interesting and original player of the Irish harp today” and as “the greatest Celtic harper of our age” by Live Ireland.

Together they have created one of the most distinctive voices in modern acoustic music. Expect dazzling Doc Watson-style flat picking fliers, driving Irish dance tunes, stately Carolan tunes, jazzy Django-ish numbers – this pair can nonchalantly do the lot.

One of the UK’s most staggering and influential acoustic guitarists” (Froots) with “The doyenne of Irish harpers” (Scotland on Sunday)

Only 40 tickets available. Book early!
