MAEVE GILCHRIST WITH NIC GAREISS
Described by one critic as “a phenomenal harp player who can make her instrument ring with unparalleled purity,” Maeve Gilchrist has taken the Celtic harp to new levels of performance.

Maeve’s innovative folk-jazz fusion approach to her instrument stretches its harmonic limits and improvisational possibilities. She is as at home playing with a traditional Irish folk group as she is with an American string band or a contemporary ensemble.

She also maintains a widely-acclaimed duo project with percussive dancer Nic Gareiss, a Michigan-born dancer, musician, and dance researcher who has studied a broad variety of percussive movement forms from around the world.

Sharing a deep respect for traditional music and culture while drawing on contemporary elements of music, dance, rhythm and improvisation, Maeve and Nic have emerged from the vibrant new acoustic scene as innovators in their fields.
