Illustrated talk on the fascinating history of the old Irish harp, given by a world expert in the field, Simon Chadwick. Admission is free, but advance booking is essential as places are limited. The Historical Harp Society of Ireland brings to life a lost sound world. Founded in 2002, the Society leads a rediscovery of Ireland’s illustrious medieval instrument, depicted in the national emblem: the early Irish harp. Silent for hundreds of years, the ravishing sound – and the rarely heard music – of the old Irish harp sounds fresh to modern ears but also evokes the farthest reaches of ancient Irish history and culture. In 2018, President Michael D. Higgins honoured the work of the Society by becoming its Patron. The HHSI offers year-round harp tuition in Dublin, Armagh, Galway, Waterford and Kilkenny. The Society’s also runs its international summer festival – Scoil na gCláirseach – each August in KIlkenny. HHSI early Irish harp Discovery Days are kindly funded by An Chomhairle Ealaíon – The Arts Council.
