Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar joined forces in 2011. Combining Russell’s powerful vocals and driving guitar style with Algar’s All-Ireland winning fiddle playing, the duo have become one of the most sought after acts on the British folk scene.
In 2013 the pair won the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award before going on to win the Horizon Award for best breakthrough act in 2014. In 2015, they were nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Best Duo.
Fine tuned by five years of touring including successful European tours of Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands, Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar return to the St George’s stage on top form.
