The Albanach Duo were formed in 2008 they are Russell Ballantine and Paul Devery.

Both are experienced performers having played in various bands, quartets and trios for many years, recently they were two thirds of the trio Terz, who's CD 'The Music of the Stuarts 'received excellent reviews in the music press.

Using nylon and steel string guitars and the dobro for slide playing the duo create imaginative arrangements of traditional fiddle, pipe, harp and even guitar tunes taken from different regions of the celtic diaspora.The repertoire can also include early English music by the likes of John Dowland and William Lawes or contemporary works by John Maxwell Geddes and Peter Maxwell Davies. Music with a Scottish connection features prominently. From early works associated with musicians of the Scottish royal courts to trad tunes and works by contemporary Scottish composers.
