The Magic of the Harp

April 1@3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

£5.00 - £9.00

A special  concert presented by children and young people featuring Anna NicNeacail (Royal National Mod Prizewinner), The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Junior Clarsach Ensemble & children of school age from all over Scotland.

You will hear the children play magical music for a story specially written by Heather Yule telling of the adventures of young Lachlan the harper. He travels over land and sea, facing many challenges, to rescue Ciorsdaidh who is being held captive by the Men of the Blue Minch. Aided by the children’s music he defeats wolves, snakes and even dragons, to finally confront the King of the Land below the Ocean.

Anna NicNeacail, from the Isle of Skye, will play a selection of her native Gaelic and Scottish music.

Clarsach students from the Junior Conservatoire of Scotland are also taking part in this concert. As well as helping with our story, they will play some of their favourite solos and sets under the direction of Jessica Burton.
