Join us at one of our HHSI Discovery Days around Ireland, where you can meet us, 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.
HHSI Discovery Days are suitable for adults and children over the ages of ten.
They have three components:
Hear a prize-winning singer and Ireland’s foremost historical harpist collaborate in a 45-min.
lunchtime concert of evocative, 18th-century harp songs and solo harp music.
Listen to, and ask questions, at a 45-min. 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.
