Cruit Éireann | Harp Ireland in partnership with Tuamgraney Harp Festival, Cairde na Cruite, Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy and Belfast TradFest are delighted to announce a range of sponsored harper opportunities this summer to support the rapidly growing interest in Irish harping.

CÉHI will support seven harpers to attend the festivals, where they will receive expert tuition from a range of internationally renowned harpers, immerse themselves within the tradition and meet and socialise with other harpers.

Dr Lauren Ní Néill, CÉHI CEO said “This initiative is hugely significant in promoting the harp at major festivals across Ireland, and ensures that harp tuition is available and accessible on a national basis. We particularly welcome a new partnership with Tuamgraney Harp Festival, which will take place from the 6th-7th April this year.”
