To celebrate the forthcoming Edinburgh International Harp Festival, now in its 32nd year, Central Library will be hosting a ‘harps in session’ in the foyer on Sat 23rd March from 12-1pm and 1.30 – 2.30. Various harp players will fill the library with their magical sounds.
The EIHF is organised by The Clarsach Society and its Artistic Advisers, Isobel Mieras and Patsy Seddon will be on hand to tell you more about it.
Oxgangs Library is also getting involved, with two ‘Stories with Harp’ sessions on Thursday 28th March. There will be a performance for under 8s and their parents and carers from 10.30 – 11.30am and another for everyone over the age of 8 from 2.30 – 3.30pm. These will include the opportunity for audience members to try some hands-on harping for themselves.
