Achill International Harp Festival
ARRANGEMENTS FOR 2021 ACHILL INTERNATIONAL HARP FESTIVAL HAVE NOT YET BEEN CONFIRMED
Please check back here regularly for updates.
Details of the 2020 virtual event are retained below, to give a taste of this wonderful festival:
Achill International Harp Festival is delighted to announce that we will be coming to you online from 23-25 October 2020. This year due to Covid-19 restrictions instead of bringing international artists to Achill we are thrilled to be showcasing the best of Irish performers to the world stage.
Join us online for harp tutorials, concerts and lectures. For those with an interest in instrument making you can learn about what is involved in the making of an Achill harp with one of our Harp Making tutors, Graham Wright. The very young & not so young can hear the wonderful bi-lingual story of Labhraí Loingseach – The King with the Donkey’s Ears!, and for those who are wishing they could be here in Achill why not join us on a virtual walk around the stunning Achill landscape and learn a little about the rich history of this wonderful island. Something for everyone at this year’s festival. Visit www.achillharpfestival.ie for further information as well as details of this year’s artists and tutors.
