ABOUT US

We are Clare and Mike, a fun, energetic couple who have a huge passion for performing in front of audiences all over the world. 
We met back in 2000 in Manchester and joined forces to create vocal harmonies with fiddle and guitar. From our humble beginnings, we have been performing our headliner shows on cruise ships since 2001 interspersed with shows in the UK.
Our show mainly revolves around our love of Celtic music, with a few other flavours thrown into the mix to compliment the feel of the show. We play a mix of instrumentals and vocal harmony songs.
Even though we have been performing for quite some time, we like to change and adapt our show to keep it fresh and relevant. After 18 years, we are still described as "A breath of fresh air."
We perform on cruise ships using the resident band (with click tracks) and for land work, if there's no band available we perform with backing tracks. We can also just work as an acoustic duo when required for a more relaxed, informal event.

REVIEWS

Well what can I say apart from OUTSTANDING! So easy to work with and a pleasure to watch. Two very lovely people and they just stood the room. Everything about this act is perfect for Warner.

 

Nick Jones, Ents Manager, Thoresby Hall  April 2017

Livewire were absolutely fantastic! The guests loved them, there were cheers for more and a standing ovation. It was lovely to see something different and such great people to work with. Perfect for Warner Hotels and much appreciated!  Couldn't be any more positive about them.  Great comments after the show from guests as well. 

 

Nidd Hall, April 2017

Excellent presentation and technique. High energy and very professional with a lot of showmanship between them. They received a standing ovation. Unique to have an electric violin/guitar duo that is talented and entertaining.
