Julie Fowlis and husband Éamon Doorley worked on this album with top singer and instrumentalist Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh from Co Kerry, Ireland, and super-charged guitarist Ross Martin from Lochaber.

The quartet started performing together in 2004, after Muireann and Julie met at the Tonder Festival in Denmark. They have been performing material sung entirely in Irish and Scottish Gaelic, as well as instrumental music.

'Dual' is a Gaelic word (similar in both Irish and Scottish) which means to interlace, twine or braid, and can also mean one's inheritance. The album looks at the strong and ancient links and similarities between the music and song of Gaelic Scotland and Ireland, as well as the differences that have developed over the years.

"It is a tribute to the four musicians involved that they have managed to present a heartfelt tribute to the disparities and parallels between the two musical cultures, whilst avoiding tedious cliché... Dual has a sound that bursts with pride - it stands alone as an utterly enjoyable recording. The musical inheritance of Scotland and Ireland couldn't be in better hands." (Mike Wilson)

"One of the most intriguing folk albums of the year." (The Guardian)
