A captivating duo - Anna Massie on guitar, fiddle and banjo, Mairearad Green on accordion and smallpipes
Multi-instrumentalists, Mairearad Green and Anna Massie are a captivating duo. Providing a highly energetic performance with a warm and friendly stage appearance, this duo will engage any audience. Individually, they can be seen performing with a number of well-known artists such as The Poozies, Blazin’ Fliddles, Karen Matheson, Box Club, Eddi Reader and Karine Polwart, and together in Scotland’s one and only Celtic Big Band, The Unusual Suspects.
Both growing up in the Highlands with similar musical backgrounds, (most notably, mandolin playing Dads!) Mairearad and Anna share an innate understanding of Scottish culture and music. Having played together for 8 years, they have an intuitive approach to each other’s musical ideas and interpretations.
“Anna Massie on guitar, fiddle and banjo, Mairearad Green on accordion and smallpipes – adds up to a wide palette of permutations, most of which featured in this relaxed, highly enjoyable performance…...shifting the lead/accompanist balance, swapping and sharing the melody, harmony, chords and rhythms with deceptive fluency.” * * * * The Scotsman
