The first thing Dezi and Mike did together, nearly 40 years ago when they were age about 8 or 9, was play music. They met in South Manchester at the O’Carolan Branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann and have been the very best of friends ever since.
In their teens and early twenties Dezi and Mike were bandmates in Toss The Feathers. Since then they have worked alongside each other on a number of Mike’s solo albums and on the Transatlantic Sessions. Despite their involvement in many different, separate projects, they always come back to playing together, whether at home in Manchester or on stages across the globe.
