First is the news that our second album is now very nearly recorded. We had a fantastic week at Fellside Records in Cumbria. It was productive and great fun and we are delighted with how the record is taking shape. We also had some special friends visit us during the week who added their various talents. We will be announcing the release date, name and other related information in the New Year.
In 2011 multi-instrumentalist Ciaran (Fiddle, Bouzouki, Guitar, Vocals) met and joined forces with Chester-born Greg (Vocals, Guitar, Bouzouki, English Concertina) to form a duo with an "amazing level of energy, ability and stagecraft" (The Prospect Folk Club, Runcorn). Northwich Folk Club saw the duo’s first live performance and since then they haven’t looked back, receiving great reviews from live performances all over the country. "Such talent in ones so young is endearing anyway, but these two shine in every department" … "So utterly refreshing" (The Topic Folk Club, Bradford).
