Máire Ní Chathasaigh and Chris Newman in Concert

When: Sun., May 17, 7:30-9 p.m. 2015

Máire Ní Chathasaigh (pronounced Moira Nee Ha-ha-sig) has been referred to as “the greatest Celtic harper of our age” (LIVE IRELAND), whose West Cork upbringing steeped in the oral tradition led to multiple All-Ireland and Pan-Celtic wins. Chris Newman is “one of the UK’s greatest musicians” (BBC Radio 2), whose recent solo album Still Getting Away with It is “An astonishing, joy-filled romp... a must-buy for any guitar player” **** SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY This duo’s performances are an emotional rollercoaster, deeply rooted but eclectic and adventurous too: a breathtaking blend of traditional Irish music from five centuries, hot jazz, bluegrass and baroque, coupled with striking new compositions - and what THE WEST AUSTRALIAN calls Chris’s "delightfully subversive wit”! They’ve made seven acclaimed albums together.

Price: $15 Adults, $5 Kids
