The celebrated and pioneering partnership of "one of the UK’s finest and most influential acoustic guitarists" (fROOTS) with "the doyenne of Irish harpers" (Scotland on Sunday) has presented its unique musical vision and "dazzling virtuosity" (The Daily Telegraph) in twenty-two countries on five continents to venues ranging from the tiniest of village halls to palaces in Kyoto and Istanbul, London’s Barbican, Sydney Town Hall and the Philharmonie in Cologne.

Chris has toured and recorded with many luminaries of the folk and jazz worlds, among them Boys of the Lough, Aly Bain, Diz Disley and Stéphane Grappelli.

Máire is a recipient of Irish music’s most prestigious award, Traditional Musician of the Year (Gradam Ceoil TG4 - Ceoltóir na Bliana).

Expect a breathtaking blend of traditional Irish music, hot jazz, bluegrass and baroque, spiced with striking new compositions, pieces from Chris’ groundbreaking new solo album Breaking Bach.
