Morris McIntyre Duo

A partnership formed through a shared passion for storytelling through song, the McIntyre-Morris Duo formed whilst studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. They have since performed across Scotland, including at the National Gallery of Scotland. As Live Music Now Scotland Artists, the duo perform to a diverse range of audiences, as well as delivering workshops and outreach programmes. Their programmes focus on romantic and folk inspired music, ranging from Schubert to English folk songs.
