His name is Mike Feeman. Hers is Tania Opland.

Together, they have the Cowichan Folk Guild excited about its Feb. 9 monthly coffeehouse in Duncan.

"This duo is rather astonishing — she's from Alaska and he's from England, and between them they play hammered dulcimer, fiddle, guitar, recorder and whistle, excellent percussion, sing, and have a wonderful stage presence," Folk Guild artistic director Robert McCourty said in an email.

Their repertoire is vast, and includes things like sing-alongs in Russian. Their credits include numerous UK and US tours and seven albums and fans around the world.

"Freeman and Opland will have you out of you seats," McCourty states. "Do not miss this extremely talented duo at the February Cowichan Folk Guild coffee house.

The duo takes the stage Saturday at the Duncan United Church, 246 Ingram St., Duncan. Doors open at 6:30pm open stage begins at 7 p.m.

The evening also includes the usual coffee house open mike.
