Festival Story:

Cairde na Cruite, since its establishment in 1960, has played a central role in the revival and development of interest in the Irish harp. While its original objectives espoused the provision of expert tuition and the publication of music for the Irish harp, its mission has evolved considerably over the last 52 years and the society has made a significant contribution to the development of a vibrant dynamic role for the Irish harp, and its positioning within Irish traditional music. Currently the society is actively involved in: promoting interest in the Irish harp nationally and internationally; continuing to integrate the wire and gut strung harps with mainstream Irish music through the medium of the Irish language where appropriate; facilitating the provision of teachers of the Irish harp; introducing a wider audience base to the ancient courtly harping tradition through information giving; and recording and performance of the music.
