Vicki and Jonny have been playing music together well over 10 years, meeting whilst playing for their local county youth orchestra. Vicki's unique style of playing the Scottish Smallpipes that is at once spell-bindingly beautiful and haunting is perfectly complimented by Jonny's driving guitar playing. Strong believers in letting music live and breathe, Vicki and Jonny allow the melody to sing without any constraints. Constantly seeking new harmonic pathways they help to keep pipe music alive and growing.
Apart from their excellent vocal prowess and inventive harmonies their current range of gigging instruments include Scottish Smallpipes, flute, nyckelharpa, double bass, guitar, accordion and low whistle
Currently taking the folk world by storm, Vicki and Jonny are establishing themselves as one of the best young duos around on the folk scene today. Although best-known for their instrumental skills with Scottish Smallpipes, accordion and even Swedish Nyckelharpa, the duo are well recognised for their songs arrangements too. With their blend of traditional material and contemporary interpretations, they have developed a sound that is both familiar and fresh.
