The Historical Harp Society of Ireland’s fifth Scoil na gClairseach–Summer School of Early Irish Harp will take place in Kilkenny, Ireland 22nd-28th August 2007. We very much look forward to welcoming old and new friends to it.
2007 sees us having our usual luxuriously small class numbers with a dedicated Beginners class in addition to Post-beginner / Intermediate and Advanced levels. We will also have a tasty array of lectures and talks given by staff and guest scholars (incorporating our unique two-tier lecture system, with parallel streams for normal and also very advanced students), concerts and a trip to see many of the surviving instruments held in Irish collections.
This years faculty includes, among others,
Siobhan Armstrong, Director (Ireland)
Simon Chadwick, Assistant Director (UK)
Ann Heymann (USA)
Javier Sainz (Spain/Ireland)
Sean Donnelly (Ireland)
Keith Sanger (Scotland)
