The Forge, North America’s most powerful new traditional Irish group, presents a dynamic fusion of Ireland’s yesterday and today, breathing fresh life into traditional dance music from the Emerald Isle. Hailing from both sides of the Atlantic, Maeve Gilchrist (harp and vocals), Anna Colliton (bodhran), Colby Music Associate Nicole Rabata (flutes), and Cara Frankowicz (fiddle) are leading performers of this music and have appeared together and in a variety of ensembles throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.
