Description: Described as a pair of musicians who can lift off a room with the "energy of a 747", Johnstone and Sharratt have performed at folk festivals, small cafes, major concert halls and even small outports in the Inner Hebrides. Roy is an ECMA nominated and award winning fiddler with five CDs who writes, performs and teaches as well as operate his own recording studio in his century old farmhouse near the sandy beaches of P.E.I.'s southern shore. Steve is an award-winning writer and multi instrumentalist who plays guitar, mandolin, and usually anything else with strings. He finally released his own solo CD in 2004 after years of having his songs recorded by many other well known artists. Johnstone and Sharratt say they are exploring the marriage of fiddle tunes and old country blues to nurture a musical concept they like to call "reel blues". (Roy's Website) (Steve's website)
