Two of Scotland’s most revered multi-instrumentalists, Mairearad Green (accordion, bagpipes and vocals) and Anna Massie (guitar, fiddle and vocals) are a truly captivating duo, providing a highly energetic performance with an instantly warm and friendly stage presence.

Having played alongside each other for over ten years, they revel in an intuitive approach to each other’s musical ideas and interpretations, and an “almost telepathic communication” on stage (Hi-Arts), effortlessly showcasing the fruits of duo partnership to the highest level, creating “music more than the sum of just two parts” (The Scotsman).

Mairearad and Anna both grew up in the Scottish Highlands amidst very similar musical backgrounds (most notably, mandolin playing Dads!), and so share an innate understanding of Scottish culture and music. As a duo they have enjoyed many successes, including five stars in The Scotsman and high praise from KT Tunstall, becoming a much-loved live act.

“…the camaraderie and sheer fun of musical collaboration is plainly evident and infectious.” Songlines

“You guys were killing it…amazing playing!” KT Tunstall

“full of energy and verve….first class” R2 Magazine

“An exuberant, beautifully recorded album…crisp, clean and crystalline.” fRoots

“The young Scottish duo of accordionist Mairearad Green and Anna Massie, on guitar and banjo…in sparkling style, performed largely original material with frequent playfulness of delivery… belying their formidable technical prowess, in music that seemed much more than the sum of just two parts” ***** (FIVE STARS) The Scotsman
