Margaret & Kristoph Classical & Celtic Duo
Margaret & Kristoph perform their original arrangements of Celtic music from the British Isles and the Medieval and Renaissance melodies of the European courts, castles, and countrysides. Featuring tight vocal and instrumental harmonies, their entrancing sound is built on the interweaving of soaring vocals with the lyrical music of the Celtic harp, octave mandolin, 6 and 12-string guitars, flute, and recorders.
Margaret Davis and Kristoph Klover have delighted audiences since 1993 -- sharing the magic of other times and places with fans of traditional music the world over. Through their travels and studies, Margaret & Kristoph have put together an engaging collection of traditional Celtic, Medieval, and Renaissance music ranging from haunting harp-based ballads and troubadour love songs to danceable jigs and reels. Margaret brings her love and academic knowledge of the language and poetry of the Medieval troubadours to their performance of this delightful music. The lyrics, including some in Gaelic, Medieval French, and Provencal, speak of love and longing, quests and revels, magic and transformation in a language that transports and enchants the listener.
Margaret & Kristoph have performed extensively throughout the San Francisco Bay Area at concert halls and festivals including Herbst Theatre, Grace Cathedral, Freight & Salvage, the Walnut Creek and Mill Valley Art & Wine Festivals, the Redwood Mountain Fair, and the Health & Harmony Festival. They have performed in Britain and Germany and for hundreds of weddings and private events. They can be heard on dozens of recordings, of the duo and with their bands Avalon Rising and Broceliande, and in 2008 they performed in the Disney movie Bedtime Stories.
