Event Overview

This concert—in the setting of the 1000-year-old tower of Kilkenny Castle—is a rare gathering of some of the world’s leading performers on early Irish harp and pipes, together with prize-winning sean-nós [‘old style’] singers, in a programme of evocative and lively instrumental music, solo singing, and harp songs, some of which have only recently been unearthed, and reconstructed, after several hundred years of being lost to the living tradition. 

Concerts take place live in Kilkenny. N.B. Concerts will not be live-streamed.

The Parade Tower, Kilkenny Castle

Eibhlís Ní Ríordáin, early Irish harp and voice; Jimmy O'Brien Moran, uilleann pipes; James Ruff, early Irish harp; Máire Ní Chéileachair, sean-nós song; Siobhán Armstrong, early Irish harp
