This award winning duo have taken these most traditional of Scottish instruments - Scottish harp and Shetland fiddle - and catapulted them into the contemporary world of music making.

A 30 year long telepathy sees this remarkable duo weave their way seamlessly between glorious soundscapes and music of breathtaking simplicity.

The intense and rugged coastal scenery and the dramatic seas that surround their respective origins in Fair Isle and Dundee are ever-present in this unique and treasured duo sound.

Virtuosic and cinematic, Chris and Catriona’s music charts a rhythmic and harmonic terrain that is all their own. The result is a dynamic and intrepidly adventurous sound that transcends genre yet remains immovably tethered to place.
