International soloist and recording artist Peter Sheridan and Orchestra Victoria Principal Flute Lisa-Maree Amos are the Married Flutes

Their performances transport listeners into a unique sound spectrum with the soulful, natural qualities of the low flutes.

Dark Star collects together many of their favourite pieces commissioned or recorded by the duo over the past decades – all of which focus on the extraordinary beauty of the low flutes. The star of the show is the Subcontra Bass Flute fondly known as Subby – made from Black PVC piping rubber pads!
