Bruce Molsky & Maeve Gilchrist

Friends for 13 years, Grammy-nominated Bruce Molsky and Scottish harpist and composer Maeve Gilchrist have bonded over the sheer joy that happens when they play together. Bruce, described as an “absolute master” (No Depression), has a unique ability to create intimacy and warmth through on fiddle, banjo and guitar. Grounded in the Irish and Scottish music tradition, yet fearless about using her unique voice in other traditions, Maeve’s total command of the harp is so grounded and transparent that it’s the emotion and the story that come across and grab the listener.

Maeve and Bruce both have deep roots at Berklee College of Music, where Bruce is the Visiting Scholar in the American Roots Music Program, and where Maeve became the first-ever harpist to teach at Berklee, her alma mater. The Irish Times calls her “the epitome of a new generation of adventurous harpers, pushing the boundaries of her chosen instrument so that it feels both ancient and utterly contemporary.” She is currently a collaborator with the Silk Road Ensemble under the direction of Rhiannon Giddens.
