Lately, she has been prolific with her compositions, blending classical & folk styles in her music.

The Fight of the Earls project
Maura portrait of the ‘Flight of the Earls’ is a fine example of the musical research of the period of the time. The historical perspective of Maura Erskine’s ‘Flight of the Earls’ is what makes the album so special in its quality.
The Flight of the Earls represents a defining point of Ireland’s history when Ireland faced its greatest crisis and turmoil. This work was a joint venture with Dr. John McCavitt who wrote the historical narrative. He is Ireland’s leading expert on the Great Hugh O’Neill.
Maura Erskine music has been in close association with Miles Jones who produced and arranges her music. They have had a long and creative partnership together, incorporating seven original albums.
