Edinburgh-born harpist and composer Maeve Gilchrist has been credited as an innovator on her native Celtic harp (Clársach) due to her uniquely rhythmic and improvisational approach to the instrument. Currently based in Brooklyn, Maeve tours internationally as a solo artist and with a variety of projects including a duo with percussive dance master Nic Gareiss, a more electronics-based collaboration with Nashville-based bass player and composer, Viktor Krauss. She has performed and recorded with such luminaries as Darol Anger, Ambrose Akinmusire, Nir Felder, Frankie Gavin, Esperanza Spalding, Tony Trischka, Alasdair Fraser, Solas, and Vardan Ovsepian. She is a regular visiting artist at the Berklee College of Music and has had a number of instructional books published by Hal Leonard.
