Instrumental duo specialising in traditional Celtic music, playing uilleann pipes, flute, Celtic harp, bouzouki, whistle & low D whistle.
Chris and Ben have played together for over 18 years professionally as a duo, as well as in a couple of bands, and they also both play solo. They have played at numerous festivals, concerts, and also for very many private events such as weddings and corporate events. The Gold Ring is an instrumental duo playing traditional Celtic music, particularly Irish, but also Scottish, Welsh, Breton, Cornish & Manx music. Their music ranges from beautiful evocative, haunting slow airs, through toe- tapping jigs, to fast exhilarating reels. In this duo Chris plays Celtic harp and bouzouki, and Ben plays uilleann (Irish) pipes, flutes, whistles and cittern.
The Gold Ring duo repertoire consists of traditional Celtic music: hundreds of traditional Irish airs, jigs, reels, hornpipes, set dances, polkas and Carolan tunes, and also many Scottish & Welsh, and some Breton, Manx & Cornish tunes.
