Colorado-based Celtic duo Beth Gadbaw and Margot Krimmel have performed together throughout the U.S., the U.K, and Ireland. Recently featured on Colorado Public Radio, their newest release Icy December was described by The Folk Harp Journal as "a wonderful compilation...that will make you feel nostalgic and warm" and by British folk magazine What's Afoot as "an absolute joy to listen to." All-Ireland harp champion Sylvia Woods said, "This is my favorite harp and vocal CD."

Singer Beth Gadbaw grew up singing harmonies with her triplet sisters in a musical household in Western Colorado. She came of age traveling from pub to folk club in the West of Ireland and later the South of England, learning traditional songs, and teaching herself to play bodhran along the way. Described by Sing Out as "lovely...with a light, bouncy energy... her voice often acting as an instrument in its own right," Gadbaw is also a former Fulbright scholar who not only sings, but finds joy in the stories and histories behind her songs.

Denver native Margot Krimmel honed her harp skills in the mountains of Colorado, and made her way through Europe busking and performing with various harp ensembles. Equally at home on lever and pedal harp, her compositions have been performed by the World Harp Orchestra. Known for her innovative style, she is an award-winning composer and performer. The Folk Harp Journal said, “Her playing is chant-like, with well-placed pauses that are equally as important as the notes.”

Pleasing to folk and art music fans alike, the music of Gadbaw and Krimmel is inspired by Celtic and American traditions, and is enhanced by the artists’ originality and creativity. Onstage, the duo invites both audience participation and quiet reflection, performing with sensitivity, exuberance, and masterful musicianship.
