EP ‘LIVE AT IONA ABBEY’

Together they explore traditional and contemporary music on acoustic and tenor guitars creating a dynamic sound that ranges from pin-drop slow airs to fiery flat-picked reels. The traditional material blends seamlessly with their own award-winning compositions. They debuted their unique live performance at the Ullapool Guitar Festival 2013 to a discerning audience of guitar aficionados and brought the house down.
