In Handel’s Day, Temple Bar was the happening place! The Neals, who were Handel’s publishers, ran the Musick Hall in Temple Bar where Messiah was premiered and they published the earliest collection of Irish music in 1724. Find out more about the Neals and hear music from this collection performed live at this event, presented by Nicholas Carolan, Director of the Irish Traditional Archive (www.itma.ie). Nicholas will be joined by four eminent performers: Siobhán Armstrong (early Irish harp), Áine Uí Cheallaigh (sean nos singing), Paul O’Shaughnessy (fiddle) and Paul McGrattan (flute).
