People are more important than wood and wire! The tradition-bearers who learned, performed and taught the old Gaelic harp traditions are fascinating individuals. These pages gather information about their lives and music.
I have made mini-sites for the most important of the old harpers. Click on a name to find out about their lives, songs, tunes, harps and more:
Ruaidhri Dall Ó Catháin (late 16th C - c.1650)
For all the other old harpers, no less important, who have not yet got their own mini-sites, click on the big list of old harpers.
