Edinburgh Folk Club: Chris Newman & Máire Ní Chathasaigh
Summerhall - Main Hall
This event is part of the Carrying Stream Festival.
The virtuoso partnership of England’s premier flatpicking guitarist and “the greatest Celtic harper of our age” (LIVE IRELAND) has by now brought its unique musical vision to twenty-two countries on five continents. Chris and Máire have performed at over 175 folk, Celtic, arts, harp and guitar festivals in Europe, the USA and Australasia and have given almost two thousand concerts in venues large and small - from the tiniest of historic churches in England, Germany and Italy to palaces in Kyoto and Istanbul, London’s Barbican, Sydney's Town Hall and the Philharmonie in Cologne.
Edinburgh Folk Club is an organisation which exists to foster an interest in the wide international world of folk and related musics. It is not compulsory to be a member to be able to attend the club’s weekly shows – just turn up and pay the admission charge at the door. The club held its first meeting on Wednesday 3 October 1973 and has been in continuous existence since then.
