Friday, 18 September 2020, 2.00pm

Laoise Kelly originally from Westport, but now living on Achill Island, Co.Mayo. She is one of Ireland’s leading traditional harpers. Laoise uses a new style of harp playing, combining the techniques of fingerpads in the bass and fingernails in the melody on a thirty-four gut-strung Paddy Cafferky harp.

Laoise has performed and recorded with the foremost artists in Irish music from The Chieftains to Kate Bush. She represented Ireland at the World Harp Festival in Paraguay. She has three critically acclaimed solo albums, and she is the director of the Achill International Harp Festival.
