Catrin Finch – harp Aoife Ní Bhríain – violin, Hardanger Fiddle
Dublin native Aoife Ní Bhríain is one of her generation’s most versatile and gifted violinists, a dazzling musician who commands both the classical world and her Irish traditional heritage. From across the Irish Sea and the west coast of Wales, harpist CATRIN FINCH has also built an impressive classical career and ventured into unchartered musical territory, most notably through her award-winning international collaborations with Seckou Keita and Cimarrón.
Double You, their debut album as a duo, features an exquisite collection of new compositions that draw inspiration from various genres, taking listeners on a captivating journey on the wings of the bees across the Irish Sea and inspired by the cultures of their home countries. Running through their stories – as individual creatives, remarkable women, and now as an inspirational duo – are universal themes of identity, self-belief and the courage to find yourself and follow your own path.
'Double You' releases on the bendigedig label on 27th October 2023.
