Maeve Gilchrist was born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland. Daughter to an Irish mother and Scottish father she grew up immersed in traditional folk music.
At an early age Maeve was accepted into the City of Edinburgh Music School where she spent seven years studying classical piano, clarsach (Celtic harp) and vocals. From her early teens, Maeve was an in-demand member on the traditional music scene in Scotland where she performed at events such as the opening of the Scottish Parliament, the Celtic Connections Festival and the International Edinburgh Harp Festival. At seventeen Maeve received a full scholarship from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA where she studied jazz and world music, alongside a colorful career as a professional musician and teacher.
Recent performance highlights include the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, the World Harp Congress (Netherlands), Celtic Connections Festival (Scotland), the Edinburgh International Jazz Festival and the ICONS Irish Festival. She has collaborated with some of the most celebrated contemporary musicians on the scene today such as Darol Anger, Vardan Ovsepian, the Unusual Suspects, Kathy Mattea, Esperanza Spalding and Martyn Bennett. Her debut CD 'Reaching Me' was released in 2006 to International Acclaim and she is about to release her second album ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¯Song of DelightÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â on Adventure Music Records in the Spring of 2011. Maeve is currently based in Boston MA. She tours regularly with Scottish bassist Aidan O Donnell fusing her Scottish roots with the colors and freedoms of jazz to produce a fresh and unique new sound.
