Event Overview

We will learn an easy harp-song melody transcribed live by the young Edward Bunting from the playing and singing of an Irish harper. We will explore the interesting differences between the harp performance that Bunting captured, and the rhythm of the song that was sung to him at the same time. We will use the Irish-language song lyrics to inform how we go about producing supple, lively phrasing in this light-hearted song air.
