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 from the same source in 2014. In 2015, they were nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Best Duo category.

Having toured extensively in the UK for five years, as well as in Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands, Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar have released 3 studio albums.


“One of the pleasures of live music of course, is witnessing the acts interactions with one another and relationships they build with the audience. Greg and Ciaran are very funny and in a few short years this humour seems to have shifted from jokes and puns to an almost 'Reeves and Mortimer' type surrealism. Greg has a dry, acerbic sense of humour whereas Ciaran is more anarchic and uncontrolled. An added twist is that at times it is difficult to tell whether they are on the verge of 'falling out' on stage as Greg gives his adult 'enough is enough' look, which just seems to incite Ciaran to further errant behaviour.”  Paul Jackson for Fatea
