It's amazing to think that it's a little over a year since we arrived back in the UK after the rest of our US tour was cancelled due to the global pandemic.
We continue to keep out of mischief. Máire's been uploading more sheet music for the harp into the webshop and I've spent most of my newly-found free time recording a new guitar album that will be appearing before too long. It's a fun project and involves playing JS Bach compositions for solo violin, cello and flute on the flatpicked, steel-string acoustic guitar. To say it's been a challenge would be the understatement of the year! It's brilliant music of course.
We recorded a concert at the Otley Courthouse Arts Centre at the end of February for Irish Music & Dance in London. It'll be streamed for seven days from March 26 - if you'd like to see it please click here
Last autumn TG4, the Irish language station, broadcast a terrific programme, Sé Mo Laoch, that featured Máire Ní Chathasaigh and her sister Nollaig. It was great fun to see some fabulous video clips from many years ago and the whole thing was beautifully produced. Anyway, if you're so inclined you can watch it by clicking here. Unless you're reasonably fluent in Irish it's probably a good idea to turn on the subtitles! (Three icons at the bottom right of the screen - the first toggles subtitles on and off.)
For the most up to date information about Máire & Chris please visit this site.

Almost 40 years after the release of his critically-acclaimed McGlynn's Fancy comes Botera.
10 years in the making, this is a CD that marks a return to Arty's jazz roots from the sixties (although a couple of excellent traditional jigs also sneak in).
Siobhan Long gave it a 4-star review in the Irish Times on December 5. Read it here...
