Maeve Gilchrist- Harpweaver Project
The harp-weaver is Maeve Gilchrists first venture into solo performance since the release of her acclaimed album the Ostinato Project in 2013 (a beguiling suite of solo harp compositions exploring the use of the two hands as separate instruments). The evening length solo concert is inspired by and shaped around the Edna St Vincent Millay poem The Ballad of the Harp Weaver manifesting in rich, textural harp-compositions, playful renditions of traditional tunes and reimaginings of the text in both verse and song and . Some subtle electronics augment the soundscape and create an atmosphere that is both welcoming as other-worldly as instrument itself. _____________________________________________________________  

Edna St. Vincent Millays poem, The Ballad of the Harp Weaver became a charmed tapestry through which Gilchrist was to weave such music, such poetry, and such song as would demonstrate with quite stunning creative understanding and technical virtuosity, the extraordinary qualities of one of the worlds oldest instruments. ..What made the evening unique, was that it was all about the music, not the performer. Gilchrist became the passionate medium, to the ultimate benefit of the music. Perhaps it is no accident that Maeve, translated from the Gaelic, comes out as one who generates great joy, or even She who intoxicates - Sam Edwards, Arts Critic, Waikato Times
