Lá na Cruite / National Harp Day

17 October is National Harp Day – Lá na Cruite – and several Pipers Club harpers are performing in Harp Ireland’s online showcase for the premier national instrument. So many musicians from all over the country are taking part that the video timetable runs on into the 18th. One of our two groups was on show on Saturday night, performing a piece by Anne-Marie O’Farrell, and the second group can be seen 1hr 34 mins into this Facebook segment, playing Carolan’s Welcome (as this year marks the 350th anniversary of Toirdhealbhach Ó Cearbhalláin’s birth).
