The Cairde na Cruite annual Harp Festival, An Chúirt Chruitireachta will take place from 29 June to 4 July 2008 at An Grianán, Termonfeckin, Co. Louth.
This residential harp festival has been running for 26 years to date and we are looking forward to yet another world class event in 2008. The festival is a celebration of the tradition of the Irish Harp and the harping tradition in Ireland. It also provides links with other harping traditions, specifically the Breton tradition in 2008.
The festival consists of tuition sessions for the harpers with internationally renowned harpers and a Sean Nós singer-in-residence Seosaimhín Ní Bheaglaoich, who will incorporate workshops with the harpers. The event also features a series of evening concerts featuring musicians / ensembles including amongst others: Siobhán Armstrong, Liadán, Dordán, Cormac de Barra, Noel Hill and Seosaimhín Ní Bheaglaoich.
The opening concert on 29th June will take place in Beaulieu House, Termonfeckin, Co. Louth. All other concerts will be held in An Grianán, Arts Centre, Termonfeckin, Co. Louth.
