Chris Stout and Catriona McKay


A welcome return to the Courthouse for fiddler Chris Stout and harpist Catriona McKay, who have been playing music together for many years both as a duo and in the 7 piece hurricane Fiddlers Bid. For this show Chris & Catriona will play unamplified. Their music is subtle, complex and richly intense, using traditional roots to explore new possibilities in the pairing of harp and fiddle.

They play Otley Courthouse on the 1st May – Tickets: £12.50 / £11 in advance, £13.50/£12 on the door.
