Early Irish harp in Italy

First concert by an Italian performer

On 28th June 2021, a solo concert on early Irish harp, given by Alessia Paola Bianchi, took place at Villa Godi Malverni, near Vicenza. To our knowledge this is the first time that the instrument was presented to the Italian public by an Italian harpist. Brava!

Ms Bianchi played an HHSI Student Downhill harp. She studies with HHSI director, Siobhán Armstrong, and now teaches early Irish harp at her studio in Vicenza, and online. More details at bianchialessia.com
