The celebrated virtuoso partnership of “the doyenne of Irish harpers” (Scotland On Sunday) and “one of the UK’s most staggering and influential acoustic guitarists” (fRoots), has graced venues large and small - from the tiniest of historic churches in England, Germany and Italy to palaces in Kyoto and Istanbul, London’s Barbican, Sydney Town Hall and the Philharmonie in Cologne – in twenty-two countries on five continents.

Chris and Máire’s performances are rooted but eclectic, emotional but adventurous: a breath taking blend of traditional Irish music, hot jazz, bluegrass and baroque, coupled with striking new compositions and Chris’s “delightfully subversive” wit.

Maire is one of Ireland’s most important and influential traditional musicians, awarded Female Musician of the Year in the Live Ireland 2016 awards and sole harpist recipient to date of Irish music’s most prestigious Award, that of Traditional Musician of The Year - Gradam Cheoil TG4 - "for the excellence and pioneering force of her music, the remarkable growth she has brought to the music of the harp and for the positive influence she has had on the young generation of harpers".

Chris began to play guitar at the age of four and at fourteen played his first paid gig in a folk club. A prolific composer, arranger and record producer, he's played with luminaries of many musical worlds: Folk (harper Máire Ní Chathasaigh and Boys of the Lough), Jazz (Stéphane Grappelli andDiz Disley) and comedy (Fred Wedlock).
