Tunes of O’Hampsey
Funded by the Arts Council Traditional Arts Bursary Award, October 2017 to September 2018 sees 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
