Máire Ní Chathasaigh & Chris Newman (Irish Harp & Guitar) Celtic Christmas Strings concert

Helmsley Arts Centre on Friday, 15 December 2023, 7.30pm


This celebrated partnership of “one of the UK’s most staggering and influential acoustic guitarists” (fROOTS) with “the doyenne of Irish harpers” (SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY) has presented its unique musical vision in twenty-two countries on five continents to venues ranging from the tiniest of village halls to palaces in Kyoto and Istanbul, London’s Barbican, Sydney Town Hall and the Philharmonie in Cologne. Chris has toured and recorded with many luminaries of the folk and jazz worlds, among them Boys of the Lough, Aly Bain, Diz Disley and Stéphane Grappelli, and Máire is a recipient of Irish music’s most prestigious award, Traditional Musician of the Year (Gradam Ceoil TG4 - Ceoltóir na Bliana).

Their Christmas show features a breathtaking blend of traditional Irish and Scottish music, swing jazz, bluegrass and baroque plus festive favourites given a fresh voice and performed in their characteristically soulful style – a spellbinding treat for mid-winter.
