Musical traditions that inform the performance practice of Early Irish poetry
CAMPS Research Lab
Thursday 13 Sept 5–7pm, Moore Institute
Through experiential investigation, Ann Heymann (a Moore Institute visiting fellow) has recreated specialised fingernail and damping techniques that, with her organological research, define the sound of the cláirseach, or Gaelic harp. Delving into related traditions such as piobaireachd (piping) and Medieval Welsh harp further informs speculative versions of rosc and laoi, with Ann’s husband Charlie as singer. This CAMPS Lab will combine a presentation with live performance. Refreshments will follow, along with open discussion.
