Aideen McGinn (vocals) and Martin Coyle (Irish bouzouki and guitar) are an folk and traditional duo exploring story telling through song.

The pair have been playing together in various ensembles for almost 20 years and have travelled throughout UK and Europe collecting music and songs which they have built into their repertoire. The duo present standard and contemporary versions of Irish traditional songs, folk songs from throughout Europe as well as some acoustic jazz standards.

Fun Fact: Martin is a keen kayaker and loves exploring caves! Water has also been an inspiration to some of his more modern compositions.
