Class of 2009

Here, gathered in the great room at Angels' Rest, are 12 of the 14 harpers who attended the 2009 'Harp in the Hills' workshop with Maeve Gilchrist. We shared lots of great tunes and teaching from Maeve, an inspiring public performance by Maeve, wonderful hospitality, and a friendly, supportive atmosphere. (Watch this space for 2010 dates.)

News from the Hills

Our 4th retreat with Maeve is almost here. Fourteen harpers will be attending, including two making the trip from Ireland just for this event. On July 16, we will be attending a play, 'The Last High Queen of Ireland', in Deerfield, with music written and performed by one of our group, Rosie Caine. On July 17, Maeve will give a concert at Angels' Rest, open to the public. But all of this is secondary to learning from a wonderful teacher, Maeve, herself. We have a great group of people coming; it promises to be a rewarding and fun-filled week.
