What’s On

Lá na Cruite, Harp Day 2021

Saturday 16th October 2021

Did you know that there are currently more than 1000 harp players in Ireland? Harp Ireland, Cruit Éireann’s first major initiative was to hold a national harp day to celebrate this wonderful upsurge of interest in the instrument, introducing it to even more players and to new audiences and recognise the harp’s unique place in Irish musical and cultural life.

Lá na Cruite, Harp Day 2021 will take place on Saturday 16th October to promote Ireland’s national instrument all over the world through concerts, lectures, tutor workshops, solo and group submissions and harp makers’ workshops. Harp Day will broadcast virtually on Facebook at and on our YouTube channel
