They have been hailed as two of the best and most hard working musicians on the folk roots scene.

last May Chris and Julie toured the UK with all-female super group 'Daphne's Flight', after a 21 year gap bringing audiences across the country not only to their feet, but also to tears. They have just completed an acclaimed second tour.
