Zoom Workshop: UNCOVERING CAROLAN

Zoom Workshop: UNCOVERING CAROLAN Zoom Workshop: UNCOVERING CAROLAN: Surprising new discoveries about how he played his music Siobhán Armstrong (early Irish harp) In celebration of Turlough Carolan’s 350th birthday, Siobhán Armstrong will share her latest discoveries on Carolan’s playing style, which has largely been lost in the sources of his tunes generally available nowadays. Join her as she shares 18th-century printed sources of his music that give hints to his unique playing style. Then explore his compositions as they were copied down live, at speed, from Irish harpers in the 1790s, surviving in rare, original field transcriptions. Participants are encouraged to bring their harps and try out the old-Irish way of playing that Siobhán will be describing, hoping to get you a little closer to Carolan’s music a year after his 350th birthday! This workshop is open to intermediate+ players of all types of harps who have a curiosity about how Carolan might have played his own compositions.
