Festival Concert Series

Our public concerts are major annual showcases for Irish harping and feature world renowned harpers from Ireland and further afield.

Our harp festival also features a series of daily workshops at An Grianán where festival mentors and workshop specialists share their knowledge with participants in a relaxed and informal setting.

As part of our outreach programme we will once again be working with Louth Music Generation harp students and visiting local schools for ’hands on harps’ sessions in the lead-up to the festival. The 2019 programme included our Rising Stars harp lunchtime series at the Tholsel in Drogheda - Louth's heritage town - on the Monday, Tuesday and Thursday of the festival. Concerts are free to the public and begin 1pm.
