the award-winning duo CD

“A delightful... satisfyingly original, often refreshingly unpredictable take on festive favourites... Gorgeous and uplifting” THE LIVING TRADITION

“Dizzying instrumental runs and really masterful playing from Máire and Chris... Maggie's flute is positively dancing... and Nollaig contributes some beautiful fiddle to the entrancing and delicate Irish Gaelic carol 'Do'n Oíche Úd i mBeithil'... The album ends with the wildly celebratory 'DIng Dong Merrily on High'... and Chris and Máire have an absolute ball playing it. This is one Christmas present to be treasured!* * * * FOLK WALES

“One of the best Celtic Christmas CDs made in memory... A wonderful holiday offering of music. Go get it - today!” CÉILÍ Magazine, Texas

Guitar and harper duo of world renown and acknowledged virtuosity... bring their dynamic and inventive approach to a collection of well-known and less well-known carols... (with) influences and stylings from medieval to traditional Irish, Gothic folk, jazz, Latin, bluegrass and rock and roll... sheer magic” Len Holton on 'From Albion and Beyond', Little Rock, Arkansas

“Dazzling virtuosity... The speed and complexity is to be marvelled at... exquisitely delivered songs... delightful”

“In a class of their own” THE GUARDIAN

“An eclecticism and spirit of adventure that is quite thrilling... Virtuoso playing... bewitching string fantasies and a wonderfully clear and expressive voice” THE TIMES

“Takes one of the most effete instruments in traditional music by the scruff of the neck and breathes a fire into its belly” * * * * THE IRISH TIMES

“50 minutes of sparkling, seemingly effortless music which is of course the product of decades of hard work... Sheer class throughout” fROOTS

“Brilliant, innovative harping and guitar-playing of astonishing virtuosity and versatility” * * * * SONGLINES
