Catrin Finch & Aoife Ní Bhriain at Bray Jazz Festival 2024


‘Double You’ is the debut album from Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and Irish fiddle virtuoso Aoife Ní Bhriain – an exquisite collection of music that was released late in 2023, and draws inspiration from various genres and the cultures of their home countries.

Just this Spring it appeared on RTE’s short list of the best traditional music releases of last year.

From the west coast of Wales, harpist Catrin Finch has built an impressive classical career, while also venturing into unchartered musical territory, most notably through her award- winning collaborations with West African kora player Seckou Keita and with Colombian supergroup Cimarrón.

Dublin native Aoife Ní Bhriain is one of her generation’s most versatile and gifted violinists, a dazzling musician who commands both the classical world and her Irish traditional heritage.

Together, Aoife and Catrin form a formidable virtuoso duo, eager to explore a musical world of creative possibility, challenge and discovery, inspired by a multitude of influences and linked by the cultures of their home countries. Their debut public performance was at the Other Voices festival in Cardigan, Wales, at the end of 2022.
