Over the past year, people have highlighted to us how connected they feel to the sound of the harp; how it calms them, comforts them and enhances their sense of national identity.

At a time when collectively we feel undermined by uncertainty, the harp expresses our togetherness and lends its voice to the fight against Covid19.

Never was the saying ‘Ar scáth a chéile a mhairimid, we live in each other’s shadows’ more relevant than it is now.

Take a moment to enjoy Harps for Hope from a selection of our leading harpers. The introductory track on each of these videos is An Cruitire from the Spirit of Laois suite composed by harper-composer, Michael Rooney and performed by Siobhán Buckley.
