Harp Concert @ Westport Town Hall & Theatre

August 2, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

€5 – €10

An afternoon of music from harpers Gráinne Hambly and William Jackson – this performance will include a selection of Irish and Scottish tunes, as well as pieces from their ‘Music of Mayo’ programme (presenting tunes associated with the county from the 17th century onwards), performed on harps, concertina, whistle and bouzouki.  They will also be joined by the Music Generation Mayo Harp Ensemble for some selections.

Gráinne Hambly from Mayo Abbey is an internationally recognised exponent of the Irish harp, and is in great demand as a performer and teacher, both in Ireland and abroad. She has attracted glowing praise for her live performances and recorded material, and also plays concertina.

Originally from Glasgow and now living in Mayo, William Jackson was a founding member of Ossian, one of Scotland’s best-loved traditional bands. In addition to being a renowned harper and multi-instrumentalist, he has gained an international reputation as a composer of music combining traditional and classical elements. William is also a trained Music Therapist. As a duo, Gráinne and William have toured extensively in Europe and the USA, and they have released a joint CD.

This performance will include a selection of Irish and Scottish tunes, as well as pieces from their ‘Music of Mayo’ programme (presenting tunes associated with the county from the 17th century onwards), performed on harps, concertina, whistle and bouzouki.
