The duo have a special ability to combine a truly diverse array of talents into a hugely entertaining show. Sliding easily from evocative Irish ballad to a mandolin and guitar version of Handelís arrival of the Queen of Sheba interspersed with their own notorious comic songs...
"A witty and captivating mix of folk, swing, blues and classical showstoppers" The Guardian
"One of Britainís finest voices" BBC Radio 4
"Britainís leading hot-fingered mandolin virtuoso" Cosmopolitan
Virtuoso mandolin, elegant vocals, guitar and fiddle wizardry, and a stage show that ranges from witty to hilarious. Expect anything from a Vivaldi concerto, trad folk, jazz standards, Celtic, ragtime, blues, a deadly accurate tribute to Jake Thackray and, of course, that song about the parrot!
