International Harp festival comes to Co Louth

An Chúirt Chruitireachta Annual International Harp Festival will be held in An Grianán, Termonfechin, Co. Louth from Sunday, June 30 to Friday, July 5, 2019. 

Seize this opportunity to become immersed in all aspects of traditional music for Irish harp. Develop skills and repertoire from ancient harpers’ tunes to songs and slow airs to jigs and reels.

Participants are graded and assigned to mentors who can offer them the best opportunity for improvement.

Children under 10 years must be accompanied by an adult. 

As part of the festival there will be harp tutoring sessions as well as public concerts, workshops and sessions.

There is a regular train and bus service between Dublin and Drogheda, the nearest town.
