Arthur Bell Auditorium

Chris is England’s premier flatpicking guitarist and Maire is considered to be “the greatest Celtic harper of our age.” (LIVE IRELAND) Their music moves from traditional Irish to baroque and jazz. They are widely sought after for concerts all over the world and have brought their musical vision to 22 countries on 5 continents. This year, Maire was awarded Female Musician of the Year in the Live Ireland Music Awards 2016. Chris is a “brilliant English master of the acoustic guitar” (THE DAILY TELEGRAPH)

“This celebrated duo took the place by storm. Stately Carolan tunes, jazzy Django-ish numbers, dazzling Doc Watson style flat picking fliers, driving Irish dance tunes-this pair can nonchalantly do the lot” The Belfast Telegraph
