"When we heard David Douglas and Esther Swift there was no doubt in our minds that we must book them for the Club. They specialise in Scottish folk music in such a professional and enchanting way one gets as completely lost in their music as in any classical symphony." - Red Lion Folk Club (2008 folk club of the year) 

Esther Swift (Harpist) and David Douglas (Tenor) are two renowned Scottish musicians. As a duo the pair have performed throughout the UK.  Their unique approach to Scottish music and versatility in performing a variety of styles from, traditional, classical, opera and musical theatre see them in demand as performers.  Highlights include: headlining the 2014 and 2015 Alloway Sessions at the National Trust for Scotland’s Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, giving them a unique opportunity to perform at Burns’ Cottage, a special theatrical performance at the ‘Ae Spark of Natures Fire’ festival, supporting Spiers and Boden on their Farewell Tour in Birmingham’s Red Lion Folk Club, Burns Meets The American Song Book at the RBBM and recitals in Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Pebbles and Ayrshire.


Esther and David are currently recording their debut album, ‘The Sweetest Hours’ a Robert Burns album consisting of new and exciting arrangements. ‘The Sweetest Hours’ will be released in January 2016, followed by a theatre tour.
