Máire Ní Chathasaigh and Chris Newman at Celtic Hall, New Karner Road

The virtuoso partnership of “the greatest Celtic harper of our age” (LIVE IRELAND) and a premier flatpicking guitarist and has by now brought its unique musical vision to twenty-two countries on five continents. Together they have created one of the most distinctive voices in modern acoustic music. Their six duo and five solo CDs, instructional books and collaborations with many other luminaries of the Celtic, folk, swing jazz and bluegrass worlds express both the depth of their commitment to tradition and an eternally playful, curious and adventurous spirit.
Over the years Chris and Máire have toured with Altan, Sharon Shannon, Cherish the Ladies, Patrick Street, the Rankins, Mary Black, Maura O'Connell, Dónal Lunny, Aly Bain, Boys of the Lough and many other leading bands and artists. Recording collaborations include a guest appearance on Irish rock legend Rory Gallagher’s posthumous Wheels within Wheels (BMG), work with (among others) Dan ar Braz, Sharon Shannon, Dónal Lunny, Liam O'Flynn, Aly Bain, Danny Thompson, Cathy Fink, Boys of the Lough, and a quartet CD,  Heartstring Sessions, with Arty McGlynn and Nollaig Casey.
