Anna is a composer, choral director and musician. Born in Northumberland and brought up in various towns and villages across England, Scotland and Wales by her musical parents, she was constantly serenaded with folk songs and tunes. She started learning violin at the age of five at St Mary's school of music, Edinburgh and subsequently took up flute, guitars, piano and tin whistle, but always favoured the voice. She was soon on the path of becoming a professional composer and has composed music for the "Wildlife SOS" television series and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows".
Rowan is a fiddle-singer, writer and tunesmith who grew up in the foothills of the Burren on the west coast of Ireland, surrounded by traditional music. In 2016, he won the Future of Young Folk Award at Bromyard Folk Festival and was nominated for the Malloy Award at Birmingham Tradfest. With the adoption of the rarely seen 5-string fiddle, Rowan has added what folk promotor Vic Smith describes as a "modern edge" to the traditional repertoire, and the universally admired fiddler, Ben Paley, has spoken of his versatility. Ben introduced Rowan to traditional Scandinavian music and he now plays with Anna in this duo.
