Hewat attained an honors degree in Jazz & Contemporary Music at the City of Leeds College of music, and studied with acclaimed Irish harpist Maire Ni Chathasaigh. She was a finalist in the 1995 Young Traditional Musician of the Year competition in Scotland, teaches private Celtic harp lessons, and composes music for film, radio, and television. Milligan received a post-graduate degree in jazz and has played with artists like Art Farmer, Scott Hamilton, and Buddy DeFranco, along with his work in Bachue. The duo released their U.S. debut, A Certain Smile, in 1999.
