Meet up with old friends and make new ones at Ireland’s festival for ancient Irish music in the medieval city of Kilkenny. Join us to discover the music, traditions and unforgettable sound of the early Irish harp – alongside the best of historical Irish vocal and instrumental music – in concerts at the beautiful, thirteenth-century Medieval Mile Museum. Listen to living Gaelic music tradition bearers, attend interactive talks, take part in workshops and have intensive harp tuition with some of the world’s best tutors for the instrument.
Scoil na gCláirseach–Festival of Early Irish Harp is made possible with funding from An Chomhairle Ealaíon (The Arts Council) and Kilkenny County Council. Our wonderful bank of HHSI Student harps has been funded by The Music Capital Scheme, supported by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and managed by Music Network.
