Harp Perspectives, Cruit Éireann, Harp Ireland’s new online journal

Coming up this Friday, 9th April, our first edition of  Harp Perspectives, a journal of research and personal insights for harpers.

Do you know who your teacher’s harp teacher was? Who was their harp teacher? How far back can you go? Tracing your lineage like this can give you an important sense of your place in the wider harp tradition.

In Tradition, Lineage and Revival, early Irish harper and researcher, Simon Chadwick, shares his thoughts about how reflecting on our harp lineage helps us understand how the Irish harp tradition has developed and changed over time, and whether a focus on harp lineage give us any idea about how harping will continue to evolve in the future.
