National Harp Day 2019
National Harp Day 2019 takes place on Saturday 19 October with a range of events around the country.
It’s exciting times for everybody involved with the harp in Ireland; numbers of harp players are increasing year on year, the demand for Irish-made harps is growing, and the harp features prominently at festivals, in concerts, in workshops and at sessions.
Cruit Éireann, Harp Ireland’s mission aims to raise awareness of this more than one thousand-year-old harp tradition, share its repertoire and make sure that we celebrate it at every opportunity.
National Harp Day sets out to promote the harp, make it more accessible, encourage more people to learn it, and attract new audiences to experience its music. It is an ideal chance for it to be played and heard in all corners of Ireland, and farther afield.
Join in at a venue near you. It doesn’t matter what standard you are or how short a time you have been playing; take down your harp and celebrate National Harp Day.
