Tunes of O’Hampsey

Funded by the Arts Council Traditional Arts Bursary Award,  October 2017 to September 2018 saw me further developing and refining my harp and voice practice by:

:: Historically informed arrangement & performance of ten Denis O’Hampsey pieces from the 1792 Belfast harp meeting.

:: Exploring innovative ways to arrange and transmit harp repertoire, drawing on the Irish sean-nós singing tradition.

:: Working with Ann Heymann on harp technique, interpretation and arrangement of the Bunting manuscripts

Funding from the Arts Council Traditional Arts Bursary Award 2017 is gratefully acknowledged.
