John Etheridge and Chris Garrick have been associated for many years. The duo provides a feast of interplay, improvisation and eclectic repertoire. Both players make extensive use of looping and other effects-creating exotic tapestries of sound, almost orchestral at times, yet can seamlessly switch to the most acoustic sound. They can evoke Reinhardt and Grappelli and then summon up the spirits of the electric avant-garde, atmospheric and hypnotic. They can roar, seduce, whisper. Jazzwise described their relationship as “one of the most potent in European Jazz”.

MacQuarrie and Toms formed in 2014. Since then they have played throughout the UK and Europe. In 2018 the duo were featured artists at Festival Interceltique de Lorient, the same year that they also supported Fairport Convention as part of their 50th anniversary tour.
Most recently the duo played with Welsh Folk Group Jamie Smith’s Mabon, to perform a commission piece to mark the 40th year of the Lowender Peran Festival in Cornwall.
Since their formation the duo have released 2 EPs, both of which have featured on BBC Introducing and in 2017 they won the International Pan Celtic Instrumental Duo competition in Ireland.
MacQuarrie and Toms aim to bring Celtic Folk music to a wider audience by combining traditional playing techniques with modern effects.
