Wild Dances & Plaintive Airs

Paul Dooley early Irish harp, Paddy Glackin fiddle, Lillis Ó Laoire voice

Paul Dooley is best known for playing Irish dance music with sparkling fluency on the early Irish harp. With a wider repertory drawn from the old Irish harpers, Dooley is a rare musician in that he plays a copy of the ancient Irish harp depicted in the national emblem of Ireland: the Brian Boru harp, now thought to be 15th century and on display in Trinity College, Dublin.

Paddy Glackin is a hugely respected fiddler from Dublin, who is both a soloist and a member of several of the best-known Irish music groups. His father, Tom Glackin, instilled in Paddy a deep interest and love of the music of his native county, Donegal.

Lillis Ó Laoire is a distinguished scholar and singer who performs the haunting, unaccompanied vocal music of his native Donegal.

An event of Scoil na gCláirseach, August 14-20, 2019
