‘Simply one of the best folk duos on the planet’
With an exciting blend of eclectic fiddle and guitar music, Zoë Conway and John Mc Intyre bring to the stage sympathetic arrangements of traditional Irish music, compositions and songs, old and new. The husband-and-wife folk duo possess a rare facility to draw pieces into their repertoire from other genres such as classical, jazz and world music, and express this material in a way which not only displays the sheer range and knowledge of both instrumentalists, but also exhibits the wonderful versatility of their instruments.
They have released two recordings to date ― one is a superb collection of live European performances, Live in Concert, released in spring 2017. The album displays their mesmerising musical interaction on-stage, and reveals some of their more virtuosic repertoire outside of the Irish traditional genre.
In their relaxed and atmospheric performances, the respect and understanding that they have of traditional Irish music and song shines through.
