Programme

Event Overview

This lovely, and easy-to-play, air was apparently collected by Edward Bunting on his field trip to Co. Mayo in the west of Ireland. We will compare his earliest transcription with his later, published edition, looking at the differences. We will work on constructing a playable version for our harps, adding a lower hand, and thinking about the most functional solutions for fingering and damping. Finally, we will focus on the phrasing, the breaths, and the musical sense, aiming to bring to light the aesthetics of the last old Irish harpers.
