Michelle Mulchay

Michelle Mulcahy is one of Ireland's most talented and gifted multi-instrumentalists in Irish traditional music today. Her array of instrumental mastery spans the harp, concertina, piano, fiddle and accordion. Michelle is considered to be one of Ireland's most adroit and creative harpers. She is currently pursuing her PhD studies in Arts Practice at the University of Limerick.

'Her revolutionary style on the harp is scintillating - played with power and panache, no concession to the complexity of the instrument, confirming her as one of the most significant musicians redefining harp at present'
- The Living Tradition.
