Artists Profile

Mícheál Ó Catháin (early Irish harp and vocals) plays a model of Dennis O'Hampsey's Downhill harp which is a specific design from the north Derry area. Drawing on the repertoire of O'Hampsey, the oldest of the harpers present at the 1792 Belfast Harp Festival, Míchéal will explore the interplay of harp and voice informed by his background in the sean-nós singing tradition.
