Round Ireland With a Harp

Suitcase (check!) Harp (check!) Camera (check!) I’m almost ready…

T-minus seventeen days until I hop on a plane and head back to Ireland for the summer. Where has time gone?

For those of you who don’t know, I learned a few months ago that I was awarded a Gaeltacht Summer Awards grant through the Ireland-United States Commission for Educational Exchange (Yes, it’s a mouthful) to study the Irish language at Oideas Gael in Glencolmcille, Co. Donegal. Along with the time I will be spending in Donegal, I am also playing harp for a choir tour of Northern Ireland during the first two weeks of June, going to a summer school for traditional music, and visiting some friends down in Waterford. Suffice to say it’s going to be a busy summer!

When I was in Northern Ireland last summer I started a blog to write about my adventures: https://harptunesandtales.wordpress.com. However, that blog is now officially moved here to my website and I will be posting updates and ramblings as frequently as I can during the summer. Please check back frequently for new posts and updates!
