‘Across the Great Divide’ have always enjoyed merging the music and styles they were respectively familiar with, to come up with something a little different. Karen took up the challenge of applying Celtic guitar to fast rousing bluegrass, Americana tunes and Tony’s original compositions.

Tony in turn, arranged dobro for Celtic airs and fiddle tunes to accompany Karen’s exquisite harp performance and blistering paced guitar fueled jigs and reels.

Joining Tony and Karen on their ‘Uncommon Ground’ Launch tour, and adding to this exciting dynamic is saxophonist and Swedish folk artist Hanna Wiskari Griffiths, bringing the rhythms and traditional style melodies borne from her Scandinavian homeland.

The combined result creates a new unique sound, intricately woven, all the while retaining respect for the traditions. A true folk fusion.

ATGD played recently at the Whare Flats Folk Festival with Hanna Wiskari-Griffiths, where many folk enjoyed it as the highlight of their festival. Here they are caught having a quiet tune among the birds and trees at the festival.
