Maeve Gilchrist

Maeve Gilchrist, the Edinburgh-born harpist and composer, has been credited as an innovator on her native instrument and taken the Celtic (lever) harp to new levels of performance and visibility. Currently based in Kingston, NY, Maeve tours internationally as a solo artist, bandleader, and composer and as a member of the Grammy-nominated Silkroad ensemble and Arooj Aftab’s Grammy-winning Vulture Prince Ensemble. Her most recent solo album, The Harpweaver, was described by The Irish Times in a five-star review as, “buoyant, sprightly and utterly beguiling.” In 2022 Pitchfork described Maeve as being one of ten global artists helping to redefine the harp. Maeve is a featured artist in DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon.
