Following Fleck & Washburn last weekend, tonight’s deadly banjo duo spans the Atlantic, uniting Coleraine-born tenor ace Damien O’Kane and 14-time Grammy winner Ron Block, of Alison Krauss and Union Station renown. Reconnecting and revitalising the carrying streams of Irish and bluegrass music, their dazzling 2018 duo album Banjophony featured mainly bespoke O’Kane originals, plus guests including Kate Rusby, Michael McGoldrick, Stuart Duncan and Sierra Hull.  “Beautiful and wild...there are no boundaries here” (Jerry Douglas)

Following their acclaimed 2019 collaboration with jazz pianist Zoë Rahman, young Scottish trio Snuffbox – award-winning fiddler/bassist Charlie Stewart, cellist Rufus Huggan and guitarist/singer Luc McNally – offer a foretaste of their upcoming second LP.
