Well, autumn is well and truly upon us now. It's been a great summer that started for us back in April with the first of four US trips in 2018. Since then we've hardly been out of the great weather!

We have a few ridiculous journeys coming up as you will see if you look at the live page. I just bought myself a new Kindle so will be loading it up with a lot of reading material that should keep me occupied for some of the upcoming long-haul flights...

In 2015 the Heartstring Quartet went to Australia for seven weeks and Denmark for a week in June. It was fun...

Arty McGlynn (guitar)
Chris Newman (guitar/ mandolin)
Nollaig Casey (fiddle/ vocal)
Máire Ní Chathasaigh (Irish harp)

Dirty Linen (USA), March / April, 2009
"A dream quartet - the sweetest and most exciting music to emerge for a long time. Matching virtuosity with sheer good taste, this album of traditional and original music pours joyfully from the speakers... amazing, majestic, delightful"

The Irish Times 10 October, 2008
"A tightrope walk into uncommon worlds... This is traditional music at its very best: crossing boundaries, tapping our own tunes alongside bluegrass and ragtime borrowings. Many lifetimes' worth of music." 

The Heartstring Sessions CD was released in the UK on September 29, 2008. Folk Roots, Scotland on Sunday, Living Tradition and many others have reviewed the CD. They're all available to read here.
