Barbara and Christopher are a pair with many and varied musical collaborations behind them and a vast experience of performing.
Barbara learned songs as a child from her Fife grandparents, but made her first foray into performing aged 19 with the newly-formed Ceolbeg and acappella trio Fair Game.
After a long silent break to raise a family and pursue a medical career, she returned to sing with Rathlin, Fon a Bhord, Sinsheen and The Barbara Dymock Band. She has 2 solo albums: Hilbert’s Hotel and Leaf an’ Thorn. She collaborated with Christine Kydd on the Sinsheen album LIFT and appeared on Malinky’s 2019 album Handsel.
Chris has been a musician since his teens, working in many distinct fields from bighair rock to sophisticated pop with Danny Wilson via London’s Theatreland. The majority of his time was spent recording and performing with his brother Michael Marra, producing albums for Michael and the legendary Saint Andrew.
In 2016 Chris produced and played on Barbara’s well-received album: “Leaf an’ Thorn”.
