It has been remarked that they are an unlikely duo. Born in Aberdeenshire (St Cyrus), and raised and schooled in Angus, with half his working life spent in the Scottish Borders, Hector has a vast background in folk music, including festival and club organiser, writer and performer. Since 2013 he has lived in the Midlands where he met Chris.
Chris is of Welsh/Cumbrian parentage and is a talented multi-instrumentalist playing guitar(s), mandolin, fiddle, mandola, concertina and accordion. His long-term relationship with music includes playing and absorbing musical styles from Shetland, Scandinavia, France, Scotland and from Ireland where he lived for several years.
In a short time the duo has guested at clubs and festivals, including the Sidmouth Folk Festival, Shepley Spring Festival, Kirriemuir Heritage Association, Alrewas Arts Festival, Lichfield Festival of Folk (L2F) and ANGUSalive – in Venues ranging from Public Halls and Museums to Churches.
