Northern Stars: Meet 3 shining lights of Irish harping

Three shining lights of Irish harping and members of Cruit Éireann, Harp Ireland, Ciara Taaffe, Adam O’Neill and Gráinne Meyer come together to showcase their diverse styles in a lunchtime concert of harpers’ music. 

They will also perform the first live performance of Gránne Hambly’s commission for Cruit Éireann │Harp Ireland; an arrangement of An Rós Beag Dubh from the Bunting Collection and Bundoran Junction composed by Patrick Davey.

Would you like to learn more about, and even get your hands on a copy of an ancient Irish harp and be taught a tune? 

Meet the Historical Harp Society of Ireland, hear this rare instrument played in concert, have your questions answered at an illustrated talk, and – if you sign up early enough – take one of up to eight places in a hands-on Beginners’ workshop. 

Listen to, and ask questions, at a 45-minute illustrated talk on the fascinating history of the old Irish harp, put together by a world expert in the field. 

Join a 75-minute, hands-on workshop for absolute-beginners. Harps copied from medieval to 18th-century originals will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
