Academy Presents: Brooklyn Rider & Maeve Gilchrist
March 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$14 – $72
In this adventurous new collaboration, Brooklyn Rider, “a string quartet of boundless imagination” (NPR Music), and Celtic harp virtuoso Maeve Gilchrist, “a phenomenal harpist who makes her instrument ring with unparalleled purity” (Dirty Linen), come together to celebrate the roots and branches of Celtic music as both an ancient tradition and a living art form. Drawing from newly imagined settings of traditional repertoire, works composed for Brooklyn Rider, and material from Gilchrist’s groundbreaking new album the Harp Weaver, this evening will meld the string quartet with an emblem of ancient Ireland in a handshake between two traditions that is both timeless and breathtakingly new.
