This celebrated partnership of ‘one of the UK’s most staggering and influential acoustic guitarists’ Chris Newman with ‘the doyenne of Irish harpers’ Maire Ni Chathasaigh has presented its unique musical vision in 22 countries on five continents to venues ranging from the tiniest of village halls to palaces in Kyoto and Istanbul, London’s Barbican and Sydney Town Hall.
Chris has toured and recorded with many luminaries of the folk and jazz worlds, among them Boys of the Lough, Aly Bain, Diz Disley and Stephane Grappeli, and Maire is a recipient of Irish music’s most prestigious award, Traditional Musician of the Year.

Expect a breath-taking blend of traditional Irish music, hot jazz, bluegrass and baroque, spiced with striking new compositions.
