Educational Program: History of the Celtic Harp and its Music with Live Performance
The harp is the oldest stringed instrument in the world and the Celtic Harp, an instrument that has a vivid and important history of its own, has origins dating back to the 8th century. I give an educational presentation on this beautiful and graceful instrument including performance examples.
Since Celtic harp music was an aural tradition, and not written down, until recently it was believed to be entirely lost. However, there has been a revival of the music and with Celtic Harpers themselves. Musicians such as myself, who perform and teach about this ancient instrument, help to keep this beautiful and historical music alive.
My program runs approximately 1 hour. Please contact me for information about booking for your school, association, group or community.
