Husband and wife Celtic duo Margaret & Kristoph consists of professional multi-instrumentalists/singers Margaret Davis and Kristoph Klover. Enchanting audiences since 1993 with their artistry on Celtic harp, 12-string guitar, flute, octave mandolin, and vocals, Margaret & Kristoph will make your event unforgettable. Their versatile repertoire of Irish and Scottish music ranges from lively jigs and reels to lovely harp/guitar tunes, ballads, and singalong songs. They are happy to adapt their program to your specific needs and can perform entirely instrumentally should you require. These professionally-trained musicians bring joy and energy to their intricate arrangements and an enthusiasm that uplifts the listener.
In addition to traditional Celtic music, Margaret & Kristoph's repertoire includes Classical music, Medieval and Renaissance music, and pop music including Van Morrision, Beatles, Grateful Dead, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Leonard Cohen, Kate Wolf, and many others -- please see their songlist!
Margaret & Kristoph have performed extensively throughout the San Francisco Bay Area at festivals and venues including the Dublin St. Patrick's Festival, Herbst Theatre, 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, Germany, and China, and for hundreds of weddings and private events. They can be heard on dozens of recordings and in 2008 they performed in the Disney movie Bedtime Stories.
Margaret & Kristoph also play with a fiddler, mandocellist, and bodhran-player, and with their Celtic rock band Avalon Rising they become a dance band.
