In advance of the European Day of Early Music on 21 March, Galway Early Music and The Historical Harp Society of Ireland presented a day-long exploration of the Early Irish Harp, including a lunchtime concert by Siobhán Armstrong, a talk on the history and construction of the harp by Simon Chadwick and a hands-on workshop by Sylvia Crawford.

As part of the Europe-wide celebrations on March 21, we prepared this ‘highlights’ video of our event.

  The HHSI will be running two more Early Irish Harp Discovery Days in Belfast and Dublin in October. Visit the Historical Harp Society of Ireland website for further information.
