Nicola and Jean met many years ago at the Royal College of Music and have worked together as a classical duo and in folk bands.
Nicola, also known locally as Nicki Barnes, has performed live at the Wigmore Hall, live on Classic FM and worked with the London Philharmonic and Bournemouth Orchestras. She has given many recitals in Festivals across the UK and was an active member of the 'Live Music Now!' scheme. Her recent recording of Koechlin's 'Chants de Nectaire' was awarded Guardian Classical CD of the week.
Jean hails from a musical family in Cork and has worked regularly with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Irish Chamber Orchestra and leading chamber ensembles in London. Her versatility has led her to recording for film and TV on folk and baroque harps, working with the Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments, touring with pop singer Paloma Faith and performing at the Albert Hall.
Together Nicola and Jean have performed together live on BBC Radio 3, at Buckingham Palace and Highgrove and they are delighted to be rekindling their partnership as 'Duo Nectaire' here in Thornbury.
