What Makes Our Acoustic Duo Special?

The Little Big Band

Most acoustic duos consisting of a singer and an acoustic guitarist are limited to what music they are able to play, and the type of venue in which they are able to perform.

We used to have the same problem, although we have added many new musical tools to our performing toy box, allowing us to perform at any venue and to give the audience exactly what is required.

Foot percussion has been a game changer for our duo, allowing us to fill the sound at any venue. Acoustic duos will often get asked the question "can you play something that we can dance to?". With clever and innovative use of a stomp pedal, harmony vocal pedal, hand percussion and other fun gadgets, we are able to cater to any type of event.

...And Everything Is Still Performed Totally Live

We do not use backing tracks! Many duos use them - we always perform 100% live music.

Although we refuse to 'cheat' and use backing tracks when performing in our acoustic duo, we can still provide music in breaks. We will provide a playlist to suit the occasion, or you can use your own playlist if you prefer.

A Great Alternative To Hiring A Band

Claire and I are both full-time, professional musicians with many years of professional performing experience. We excel at providing top-quality music at formal or informal events, and we are a friendly and fun duo.

We don’t take up much space and our high-end, professional equipment, produces crystal clear, big sounds in a small package.

What Music Do We Play?

Our repertoire is constantly growing and we have a huge list of songs that will cover all musical tastes.

We really can suit any occasion with our extensive repertoire, and we are always happy to learn a special song for your wedding or event. Whether performing a song to accompany the bride walking down the aisle, a favourite song for a birthday party, or even a heartfelt tribute at a funeral.

We often perform Christmas events and we are able to provide a great choice of Christmas music to bring on the big day.

...and yes, you can dance to our music.

About Our Duo

Claire and I love performing together and we are the best of friends. I had been playing in the Claire Barker Band for a few years before we decided to form our acoustic duo in 2016. At the time, we had no idea the duo would develop into the passion we both hold for it today.

Claire is a phenomenal singer who can sing anything and her voice always amazes me. Claire has an incredible vocal range, her tuning is flawless and it is a privilege to share the stage with such a talented and gifted singer.

We work so well together in the duo and it feels like musical heaven whenever we perform.
