Jenna and Màiri from the Isle of Skye, combine to make contemporary music rooted in the melodies of Scotland and Appalachia.
The pair met in 2012 whilst studying at Berklee College of Music and are a product of the thriving and rich Boston music community, and have since toured in the US, Scotland, and France, including sold out performances at Celtic Colours, Celtic Connections, Scots Fiddle Festival, & Club Passim.
Jenna and Màiri have both been heavily steeped in tradition, but their music breathes new life into old tunes and merges their wide-ranging influences into a sound that is at once grounded and adventurous.
To hear them is to bear witness to conversation, connection, and expression between two of the most exciting voices in traditional music today. Their debut album, 'One Two' was released in April 2017, and has been a widely-celebrated first release.
"The chemistry between Moynihan & Chaimbeul is a tangible, palpable entity at the heart of their collaboration, making for as natural a sound as I have yet heard in contemporary instrumental acoustic music, and a classic example of how wonders can transpire when you find 'your people'" - Folk Radio UK, David Morrison
"Jenna and Màiri are extraordinarily deep musicians at the leading edge of Celtic music—one of many ethnic threads that feed into what became American roots music. They’re at the top of the Celtic world.”- Matt Glaser
