Michigan-born percussive dancer Nic Gareiss and Edinburgh harpist Maeve  Gilchrist met while teaching at the Shasta Fiddle Summit in Northern  California. They continued their musical relationship with spontaneous  collaborations at festivals and chance meetings and later toured  together as part of Darol Anger's band, 'The Furies,' finally making  their duo debut at the Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow, Scotland.  Sharing a deep respect for traditional music and culture while drawing  on contemporary elements of music, movement, rhythm and improvisation,  Nic and Maeve have emerged from the vibrant new acoustic scene as  innovators in their fields. The percussion and drive of Nic's footwork,  combined with Maeve's melodic and improvisational sensibilities, make  for an explosive duet sure to delight both the ears and the eyes. 

Natalie  Haas is one of the most sought-after cellists in Celtic music today.  She and Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser have toured as a duo for 18  years, wowing audiences at festivals and concerts worldwide with their  unique sound. She has appeared on over 50 albums, including those of  Cape Breton fiddler Natalie MacMaster; Irish greats Altan, Solas, and  Liz Carroll; and Americana icon Dirk Powell. A graduate of the Juilliard  School, Natalie is currently based in Boston, where she is an associate  professor of cello at Berklee College of Music. 

Montrealer Yann  Falquet is one of the most creative acoustic guitarists in today's  Québécois music scene. Over the last 15 years, he has recorded five  albums and toured the world with French Canadian power trio Genticorum.  Over the years, he has developed a unique personal guitar style for  Québécois folk music, rhythmically powerful yet subtly complex. 

In  the last few years, this husband and wife team of Natalie Haas and Yann  Falquet have been touring together as a duo, performing a mix of  Québécois traditional songs and new takes on folk music from throughout  Western Europe.
