Dual were formed as a result of the group all meeting up at Fèis Eilean an Fhraoich. They now attend the Fèis Eilean an Fhraoich groupwork classes which run throughout the year meeting every Wednesday night at the Newton Centre in Stornoway.

They are tutored by local musicians Andrew Yearley, Anna Murray and Jane Hepburn all of whom have been regular performers at the festival.

Dual’s dedication to honing their performance and stagecraft won them first place in the Under 19 Folk Group competition at The Royal National Mod in Glasgow 2019.
