Celtic Christmas Strings

Chris Newman & Máire Ní Chathasaigh


with Chris Newman & Máire Ní Chathasaigh

Famed for originality, innovation and virtuosity on their respective instruments, Chris guitar and Máire harp, vocals create one of the most distinctive sounds in modern acoustic music, as enjoyed in venues large and small in twenty-plus countries on five continents for the last three decades. In this seasonal show they present a breath-taking blend of traditional Irish music, swing jazz and bluegrass, plus festive favourites given a fresh voice with arrangements that are intricate, inventive, moving and beautiful, all performed in their characteristically warm-hearted style.
