Joined by the fantastic Ross Martin on guitar, this dynamic and charismatic duo are not to be missed.

This musical experience is not only a must for both fiddle and pipe enthusiasts but for all fans of traditional music in one of its purest forms.

Traditional music magazine The Living Tradition said that Chris and Finlay were an ‘unfeasibly talented duo‘ and that they ‘create sounds that weave together beautifully and demand that you sit up and listen’.
