Dublin native Siobhán Armstrong performs in Our Lady’s Chapel

Siobhán Armstrong harpistFriday, June 7 was a stormy evening but quite an entertaining one in Our Lady’s Chapel at the Elms. While on tour in New England, Siobhán Armstrong took time to visit the Irish Cultural Center and to perform for over 125 members and guests. Siobhán’s music and storytelling mesmerized the listeners; it was as if the Chapel had been transformed to a medieval castle.

Siobhán founded and chairs the Historical Harp Society of Ireland, an organization which is spearheading a revival of the playing of Ireland’s historical harp. She plays Irish and European single-row harps from the 15th-18th centuries and performs and records internationally with the main period-instrument ensembles thee paland conductors, mainly in Europe.

ICC Board of Directors Chip Costello and Will Dziura hosted the event. Many thanks to volunteers: Ann Lowe, Winifred Hopkins, Kathy Gallivan, Meghan Sullivan and Beth Costello, for helping to make the evening a success!
