Máire and Chris’s alchemy on harp and guitar creates a very special magic. Individually famed for originality, innovation and virtuosity on their respective instruments, together they have created one of the most distinctive voices in modern acoustic music.
Celtic Christmas Strings features a breath-taking blend of traditional Irish music, swing jazz and bluegrass, plus festive favourites. Enjoy their beautiful, fresh arrangements that are intricate, inventive and moving, and performed in their characteristically heart-warming style – a spellbinding treat for mid-winter.
Chris and Máire performed in our first season in 1997, and we are delighted to welcome them back to close our 25th birthday year!
“A delightful... satisfyingly original, often refreshingly unpredictable take on festive favourites... Joyful, gorgeous and uplifting” – The Living Tradition
