Enjoy an Irish harp-song concert recording

Eibhlís Ní Ríordáin at The Remembering Bunting Festival 2021

We are delighted that The Remembering Bunting Festival in Belfast has made their 2021 festival events available to enjoy for free until 21st March. We think you might particularly enjoy a ground-breaking concert recorded for the festival by singer and harpist, Eibhlís Ní Ríordáin.

Eibhlís is the only professional performer in Ireland performing old Irish harp songs while accompanying herself on an early Irish harp. In this captivating, 30-min. programme, she introduces, and performs, a set of Carolan harp songs – music we normally only hear as instrumental music. Experience it here in versions much closer to Carolan's originals, on the kind of harp that he played himself.

Eibhlís Ní Ríordáin will be performing and tutoring at Scoil na gCláirseach—Festival of Early Irish Harp 2021 ONLINE in July. Check out her classes and all the dozens of live, and recorded, festival events here. [Click on 'Summer Festival' in the top right-hand corner to see the detailed programme.]
