About
The Big North Duo performs classic swing, blues, country and original songs on the upright bass and mandolin. Since 2011, Paul and Christian have released three full length recordings and kept toes tapping at hundreds of live performances in settings as diverse as weddings, street fairs, non-profit fundraisers, wakes, Christmas parties, upscale restaurants, wineries and beer joints. The Big North Duo has a deep catalog of music, and will happily work with clients to deliver a performance suited to the situation - including learning a personally meaningful song or two if the occasion requires it. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

The Big North duo performed at our corporate event. They came 1 h before the party to set up everything in time which was very appreciated. The music was positive and light, Christian's voice is very beautiful. All the guests were pleased with their performance. What is more the music is suitable for all ages. I highly recommend them!

The Big North Duo was so awesome to work with for our wedding. We came from out of state but Christian was always on top of email communication. We had them play during our ceremony and they were great at curating the perfect track list for our moment. They learned a new song for the end of our ceremony and it was my favorite part of the night. I would get married all over again just to have The Big North Duo play my wedding.
