After they thrilled a Masham Arts festival crowd in 2013, we are delighted to welcome back two-time BBC Folk Award winning duo Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar to the town hall. Greg and Ciaran have a delightful stage presence and chemistry, mixing charm and an easy wit with impressive force and emotion when the music calls for it.
Guitarist Greg and All Ireland Fiddle Champion Ciaran met in 2011. Their debut album, The Queen’s Lover, was released in 2012 and became an instant success. In January 2013, while still at university (Greg) and school (Ciaran), the pair picked up the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk award. They have since received the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Horizon Award for Breakthrough Act, and been nominated for Best Duo. Their current album "Utopia and Wasteland" came out in 2018.
