Event Overview

This talk explores the design and craftsmanship of early Irish harps. We will discuss how to examine, assess, and understand an historical instrument, and consider the design of these harps — what was the maker's intention? We will also discuss how this information can be used to inform making harps modelled after surviving historical instruments.
