Harp / Voice / Composition

New album

Maeve’s debut solo harp album The Ostinato Project is out now. Delicate sound-scapes and rich textural landscapes in this suite of compositions designed to fully utilize both hands as separate voices.


MARCH 2014

It's been a cruel winter folks but spring will be all the sweeter when it comes!
I'm loving my new home in Brooklyn. What a wild and inspiring city. I'm living in Dumbo and aurally I'm soaking up the clanging and whirring noises coming from the nearby factories while the Manhattan Overpass is roaring up above. My next musical project will have to be a noisy one and right now I'm a sponge, just soaking it all in and stealing around like a thief with my little recording device. I just got back from a trip to Ireland where it was pleasure to teach at Limerick university and get a chance to work with some of the talented harpists over there. Now I've got a little break in March save some one off's with my dear friends Tony Trishka and Jean Rohe and I'm using the time to practice, write, read and explore my new home. I'll be heading back over to Europe in April with percussive dancer extraordinaire Nic Gareiss. We'll be hitting up the Edinburgh Harp Festival and then heading over to Belgium for a show. Later in the month I'll be doing some recording with a great NYC based guitarist called Kenji Herbert. Check out his interesting creations HERE. So many beautiful sounds.

I'll leave you with this video of Nic Gareiss and I performing a tune I wrote for him called 'The Sandhunter'. Enjoy!
