      Thanks, this was very helpful - trying to bring more expression into my playing, and I love how you connected breathing, and singing (which my teacher actually often does to demonstrate how a phrase should be played) with expression. And I always need motivation to pay attention to hands!

      What was your favorite part of the Maeve’s playing is magical. Her demonstrations and explanations of the music and exercises were excellent.

      Thanks for the feedback everyone. Next harp talk will be Aug 11th and we'll be back to our normal pacing!

      Linda F -- I had no problem with streaming today using my wifi at home on cable internet (not phone with phone data). Sometimes a different browser could help but you should talk to Concert Window about it. One handout this month -- June etudes (it's given out in advance and she'll cover in it August, so maybe it should be called For-August etudes). Cloud Surfing was last month's handout as were the May left hand exercises, and both were covered in today's harp talk.

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
