Maire Ni Chathasaigh is arguably the most influential and prolific Celtic harpist today, called “the great innovator of modern Irish harping.”  Chris Newman is one of the United Kingdom’s great acoustic guitarists, known for his astonishing virtuosity and versatility.  The pair’s exceptional performances are an emotional rollercoaster, deeply rooted but eclectic and adventurous: a breathtaking blend of Irish music from five centuries, hot jazz, bluegrass and baroque, spiked with striking new compositions. Together they have created one of the most distinctive voices in modern acoustic music.
