The Irish harp is the iconic instrument of Ireland, it’s depicted on the national emblem, but how much
do you know about it? The Duncairn is delighted to host the Historical Harp Society of Ireland who are running a day of discovery, starting with a concert by harpist Siobhán Armstrong, and prize-winning singer, Eibhlís Ní Ríordáin. There will also be a beginners’ workshop using copies of ancient Irish harps — no musical experience is necessary but advance booking is advisable. And you can learn about the early Irish harp in a free illustrated talk given by world expert, Simon Chadwick.
