About Us

Old Bridge Music

We are a record label, music publisher and recording studio, specialising in Irish and Celtic traditional / folk music and related genres.

Since 1991 Old Bridge Music has been creating music of artistic ambition, with a commitment to beautiful sound and high production values. We aim to produce recordings of the highest sonic and musical quality.

It’s co-owned by renowned English guitarist, composer and silver-disk-winning record producer Chris Newman and virtuoso Irish harper Máire Ní Chathasaigh. Further  information about them at their duo website here.
 
Critically-acclaimed albums by Chris and Máire, Nollaig Casey, The Heartstring Quartet (Chris, Máire, Nollaig and Arty McGlynn), Clive Carroll, Christy O’Leary and Tom McConville appear on the label.
 
In addition, classic albums such as iconic songwriter Steve Tilston and the late Maggie Boyle’s Of Moor and Mesa – featuring much-covered songs such as “The Slip-jigs and Reels” – and Brendan Power’s ground-breaking New Irish Harmonica were recorded and produced by Chris here in our studio.
