The brilliant, innovative harping of Máire Ní Chathasaigh, Irish Traditional Musician of the Year 2001, and the astonishing virtuosity and versatility of English guitar wizard, Chris Newman, have been heard all over the world; now they come to the Rose for the first time with their addictive and stylish cocktail of powerhouse Irish dance-music, gorgeous airs, evocative old songs and striking new compositions – with shots of hot jazz and bluegrass thrown in! Their new CD FireWire has garnered extraordinary critical acclaim:

“Máire Ní Chathasaigh is in a class of her own” – The Guardian.

“Dazzling virtuosity… The speed and complexity is to be marvelled at… exquisitely delivered… delightful” – The Daily Telegraph.
