Wood & Cutting are one of the most influential acts on the British folk music scene. Chris Wood is an English folk musician and composer who plays fiddle, viola and guitar, and sings. He is an ardent enthusiast for traditional English dance music (with a background in English church music), including Morris and other rituals and ceremonies, but his repertoire also includes much French folk music and traditional Québecois material. Andy Cutting is an English folk musician and composer. In 1989 Cutting formed a partnership with Chris Wood, whom he had met two years earlier at Sidmouth Folk Festival. They tour extensively and have made five albums together. Wood introduced Cutting to a wealth of Québecois music and shared his love of English and French dance music. Wood & Cutting, together with Karen Tweed and Ian Carr, make up The Two Duos Quartet, who have made one album: "Half as happy as we".
