Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar
Two time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Winners Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar combine Russell’s powerful vocals and driving guitar style with the latter’s All-Ireland Championship winning fiddle playing.
Since joining forces the duo have become one of the most sought after acts on the folk scene touring extensively in the UK, Denmark, Germany, France, Spain, Belgium and The Netherlands. Their fourth and latest (2018) studio album, Utopia & Wasteland, was described as “a big step forward” (RnR Magazine) and established them as “the golden boys of Brit-Folk” (MOJO) and raised the pair to being “one of the most exciting duos in any genre” (FRUK).
As well as touring as a duo, Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar have been involved in some of the leading artistic collaborations to have come out of the UK folk scene in the last ten years including The Transports (5 Stars, The Guardian) and Shake the Chains (4 Stars, The Guardian).
