Still in her mid twenties, Edinburgh born Maeve Gilchrist has been credited as an innovator on her native Celtic Harp due to her unique chromatic and improvisational approach to the instrument. Based in Boston MA, Maeve tours internationally as a solo artist and with her trio. She has performed and recorded with such luminaries as Darol Anger, Kathy Mattea, Esperanza Spalding, Tony Trischka, Alasdair Fraser and Vardan Ovsepian. She teaches at the Berklee College of Music and has been published by Hal Leonard.

On Saturday, May 30th she will be joined by percussive dancer, Nic Gareiss. Michigan born dancer, musician and dance researcher, Nic has studied a broad variety of percussive movement forms from around the world. This is Nic's second appearance at a Jenkins House Concert. This time we welcome back with Maeve, who also played a show here in December 2012.
“The human epitome of the unbearable lightness of being...Gareiss is more fleet of foot than an Olympian sprinter and more buoyant than a helium-filled balloon...his restraint is palpable and freeform flight is inevitable.” – Siobhán Long, The Irish Times
