ON 30TH OCTOBER 2016 MARY O'HARA IS TO BE HONOURED WITH A LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD


Achill International Harp Festival, in conjunction with Harp Ireland-Fóram Cruite na hÉireann, will present legendary soprano and harpist Mary O’Hara with a lifetime achievement award for her outstanding career and promotion of the Irish harp around the world

Achill Island will be alive and buzzing with the rich and vibrant sounds of harps from around the world over the October 2016 Bank Holiday weekend. The inaugural Achill International Harp Festival aligns itself with ancient harping traditions by gathering harpers at Samhain to explore, develop, and perhaps challenge this beautiful musical form. The festival will not only celebrate the harp as the national instrument and national emblem of Ireland, it will also showcase the instrument in its international context, with harpers from other parts of Europe and South America. Visitors will be able to experience the best of music and be immersed in the culturally rich and beautiful surroundings of the island situated on the Wild Atlantic Way
