Event Details

Bill Taylor will perform historical harp music from across the British Isles using a variety of harps – a medieval gut-strung harp, a wirestrung Highland clarsach and a Renaissance harp with buzzing bray pins. The programme will include intabulations of sacred chants, compositions by Scottish and Irish clarsairs, and pieces from the Robert ap Huw manuscript, containing the earliest harp music from anywhere in Europe.
