An amazing young artist known for examining and redrawing the boundaries of traditional music, Maeve was one of our first FRINGEperformers, appearing with Galician piper Carlos Nuñez in 2014 and with avant-garde folk musician Sam Amidon in 2015.

Rooted in the traditions of her native Scotland, Maeve has continuously pushed boundaries and has taken the music of the traditional lever harp to the outer limits. With both the ability and the instinct to straddle several disciplines she moves easily from the traditional to the cutting edge. In one of the first performances of The Harp Weaver, her new solo show, she will demonstrate her range and share some of her passion for the instrument and the wealth of music that it has inspired  Don’t miss it!

Here’s Maeve performing Richard Thompson’s Beeswing at our first FRINGE concert:
