We are a fiddle and piano duo from Cavan (Ireland) and Lancashire (England) who are now based in Glasgow. We play exciting arrangements of our own unique compositions. Over the past two years we have recorded a 4-track EP and have been performing throughout Scotland, Ireland and England. Highlights for us include performing at the prestigious Glasgow festival Celtic Connections, at the renowned Seamus Ennis Centre in Dublin, the fantastic Islay Sessions and also as part of Lau's 'Emerging Artists' platform at the Queen's Hall in Edinburgh during Lau-Land.

We are very excited to be making our debut album this year. The new CD will be comprised solely of our own compositions, all uniquely arranged for fiddle, piano, whistle and flute and will feature some fantastic guest musicians.

We have been very fortunate to have obtained funding from Creative Scotland which will go towards making the album. We still need your help to raise the remainder of the funds to complete our project to the highest level. 

£750 is our target which we need to raise in order to make our album. There are lots of exciting rewards for each pledge, large or small. Every pledge comes with an album accredit - you will get your name in the sleeve notes of our CD as we will appreciate every contribution.

Thanks a million, 

Gráinne and Tina :) 

Risks and challenges

Hopefully we won't encounter any set backs, however a common problem when recording is that things take a little longer than expected. We've hopefully accommodated for this by leaving sufficient time which will cover any possible delays.

We will keep everyone up to date with the progress of our album throughout the whole process.
