      1. The video on this site is only streamed live and not saved for later. If you want harp videos you can watch over and over again, take a look at the Harp Column Academy videos -- Maeve is there, and so is Kim Richardson and Grainne Hambly along with classical harp teachers. One video for each teacher is free to watch, and it's $50/year or $20/month for all the videos on the site. The videos are around 5-10 minutes each and you can watch over and over until it sinks in.

      2. (in answer to Patty) The handouts don't seem to be automated; they are emailed manually by Maeve and it takes a few days for her to get to it. There are two handouts for $5 each that will be part of next month's discussion -- they were featured in the tip boxes at the top of the screen (those boxes now missing, so look for them in the long list at the right), so they are available in advance -- "Cloud Surfing" (a beginner-intermediate piece she wrote) and "May technical challenge (Left Hand focus)". And "Parking Spot" was available since last month for this month's demo. They can be ordered now though it's not clear how often she sends them out given that she just sent out a bunch today. To me, it is not necessary to have the handouts in order to follow the discussion, but it's nice to have afterwards to remember.

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

Born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland, and based in Brooklyn, New York, 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 tours internationally as band leader or soloist and has appeared at such major music events as Celtic Connections in Glasgow, Tanglewood Jazz festival, the World Harp Congress in Amsterdam and the opening of the Scottish Parliament. She has played with such luminaries as Kathy Mattea, Esperanza Spalding, Tony Trishka and Alasdair Fraser.

Maeve has released four albums to date, including her most recent recording, 20 Chandler Street, on Adventure Records, with bassist Aidan O’Donnell and fiddler Duncan Wickel, while on her own label her solo Ostinato Project is a beguiling exploration of the possibilities of her instrument.

She also maintains a widely acclaimed duo project with percussive dancer Nic Gareiss and tours regularly with bluegrass fiddle ace Darol Anger.

Maeve also teaches widely, and is the first lever harpist to be employed as an instructor by Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she graduated. She has written several instructional books published by Hal Leonard Music.

Reviews of 20 Chandler Street:

If there’s a soundtrack to a fine summer, this is it. If there’s a musician who can bask in tradition yet immerse herself musically in the multicoloured experience of life, it’s Gilchrist – Siobhan Long, Irish times

Her traditional musical roots are evident but within a sublimely graceful and sophisticated contemporary soundscape. Suffused with classical precision, the music is intricate, richly layered with moods, movement, pulsing currents and waves – Kevin Ward, Living Tradition magazine
