Liz Davis Maxfield is an up-and-coming cellist who has gained popularity with her precision and style. Although the traditional instrument for Irish music is the fiddle, Maxfield presents the traditional Irish tunes on her cello.

Maxfield started her studies at Brigham Young University in the School of Music but transferred eventually to Boston's Berklee College of Music. In 2009, as a Fulbright scholarship recipient, she went to the University of Limerick to study Irish music, albeit on a cello. Her time in Limerick was spent in master classes with Frankie Gavin and other giants of the fiddling world.

In early 2013 Maxfield unveiled both a new album and a new book, The Irish Cello Book: Traditional Tunes & Techniques. Maxfield is currently the communications director for the Utah Valley Cello Society and also teaches aspiring cellists. She, her husband, and their son currently live in Utah.
