What’s On

Lá na Cruite, Harp Day 2021

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 celebrated our 5th Lá na Cruite, Harp Day 2021 on Saturday 16th October, featuring live harp events from all over the world and a dynamic online programme of activities.
