The ACHILL INTERNATIONAL HARP FESTIVAL returns for its third year this October Bank Holiday Weekend 26th-29th
We have an action packed weekend in store with something for everyone at this year’s Achill International Harp Festival. A host of International and Irish artists will provide tuition at harp workshops and workshops for all instruments.
If dancing is your thing there will be sean-nós, céilí and two-hand dance workshops. For the youngest of festival goers we have a very special Guaglaí Gug music and song workshop.
The afternoon and night time concerts will give audiences an opportunity to hear some of the finest exponents of the harp and other traditional instruments. Along with the best of Irish musicians, guest artists this year will be joining us from Galicia, Estonia and Venezuela.
For those who want to hear music until the early hours there is a late night Live Festival Club after the concerts on Friday and Saturday night. Our Sunday night concert is followed by a Céilí – so get your dancing shoes on!
There will be walks, talks, recitals and a screening of the film ‘Iomramh an Chamino’. If all this isn’t enough you can even make your very own 26 string Achill Harp at our harp making workshop.
There is something for everyone at this year’s festival. Mark it in the diary! Don’t miss it!
