All the Flowers of the Forest
James Ruff (solo harp), Eibhlís Ní Ríordáin (voice and harp), Sarah Ghriallais (solo voice)
A chance to hear the spine-tingling, solo voice of Sarah Ghríallais, from the famous singing dynasty, steeped in raw, west Connemara style.
Historical harpist, James Ruff, known for his moving performances of old Gaelic repertory, plays rare and evocative harp music from seventeenth-century Scotland.
And prize-winning singer, Eibhlís Ní Ríordáin, sings harp songs of the seventeenth- and eighteenth centuries, accompanying herself on an early Irish harp, as the old Irish harpers did, for centuries, before the tradition died out.
An event of Scoil na gCláirseach - Festival of Early Irish Harp, 14-20 August, 2019
