What’s On

Lá na Cruite, Harp Day 2022

The harp holds a unique place in Irish musical and cultural life and numbers of harp players are growing year by year as more and more people take up the instrument.

Harp Ireland, Cruit Éireann’s first major initiative was to hold a special Harp Day to celebrate this wonderful upsurge of interest in harping, introducing it to even more harp players and to new audiences.

We will celebrate our 6th Lá na Cruite, Harp Day on Saturday 15th October 2022, with live harp events from all over the world and a dynamic online programme of activities.

Visit Harp Ireland's YouTube channel to enjoy the videos from our 2020 and 2021 programmes.
