Award-winning harpist Máire Ní Chatasaigh is one of Ireland's most important and traditional Irish musicians. Using her knowledge of the idiom of the living oral Irish tradition, she developed a variety of new techniques, particularly in relation to ornamentation, with the aim of establishing an authentically traditional style of harping. She appears here with Chris Newman, one of the UK's most influential acoustic guitarists.
