Described as delivering “energetic and charming performances”, the Morris-Begg Duo of Ross Morris (guitar) and Ines Mayhew-Begg (soprano) began working together in 2019 at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. They have already brought their shared enjoyment of the intimate and expressive nature of voice and guitar to several prestigious venues across the UK including as Kings Place, the National Gallery of Scotland, St Giles Cathedral and the National Musuem of Scotland.
They perform to a wide variety of audiences as Live Music Now Scotland Artists and International Guitar Foundation Young Artists. Next year they will be premiering new IGF commissions for voice and guitar. They aim to continue to bring a freshness to their programmes through their own unique arrangements and commissions.
Ross has performed across the UK as a soloist including at Helly’s International Guitar Festival and he toured with Glyndebourne Opera in 2021. He is a member of Quartet Malamatina who performed at the UN Climate Conference and will be touring the UK and Canada in 2023, premiering a new commission by Marco Galvani. He teaches guitar and musicianship at St Andrews University.
Ines is a Scottish soprano and has recently made her German Debut as Adele in Lyric Opera Studio Weimar’s production of Die Fledermaus. She has performed several solo roles for Scottish Opera Young Company and her performance as Amore received praise for having ‘confidence, consistency and fluency’ by Andrew Clark in Opera Magazine. She has a keen interest in early music and is the founder and director of the Avra Baroque Ensemble
