Catriona McKay & Chris Stout started a new collaboration with Sťamus Begley in 2014 as part of project initiated and promoted by Music Network. They tourned Ireland in Septemer 2014 and their CD was album of the week in the Irish Times.


The ancient Gaelic world of Sťamus Begley’s West Kerry reaches through musically diverse Scotland, onto the Shetland Islands and well beyond.† At once intimate and playful, this collaboration makes sense of the bridges that span the Celtic realm.†
