The duo is based in West Sussex but perform across the South East and London.
Slide and Fiddle comprises Chris and Alexandra who offer the beautiful sound of acoustic slide guitar, also known as Dobro and violin/fiddle.
They perform a mixture of traditional folk tunes from the Celtic, bluegrass and old-time songbooks, along-side classic contemporary songs. They're very experienced at live performance having worked professionally for many years.
Chris is a specialist slide guitarist who writes for the national guitar press as well as working as a session guitarist in the studio and on tour. Alex is a classically trained viola player who has toured the festival circuit as a session musician, including performing at the Glastonbury music festival.

"Catherine and I wanted to express our thanks for your performance at our wedding on 22 June in Peasmarsh. We thought your set was perfect and our guests really enjoyed it with the sun shining. Thank you too for throwing a Cornish folk song into the mix. As you could tell this was noticed and much appreciated by our Cornish contingent. We thought your style very much suited what we were after and we found for very easy to deal with and make arrangements with."
- Michael and Catherine, June 2019
