Welcome to the New England Irish Harp Orchestra website. We are many harps and harpers with a shared vision of playing great music and having fun doing it.
A big thank you to all who came to our holiday shows. We really appreciate your support. We had so much fun with our guest musicians - Tommy Sheridan, Terry O'Shea, and Carolyn Spragur. What a blast. And, of course our regular musicians - Grace Timlin on Fiddle, Claudia Altemus on whistle, Kevin May on ulliean pipes, and Tony Keegan on bodhran.
We were in the studio the first weekend in January (the coldest one)! to start work on our next CD. It will be a holiday CD and due out in October 2018
We have many shows lined up for March in New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
We have our first time concert at The Canadian-American Club on Arlington St. in Watertown on St. Patrick's night. We are hoping to have a ceili afterward. Please check our calendar to see the full list of concerts.
We're very excited to be collaborating with The Sandy Ridge Boys(sandyridgeboys.com)sandyridgeboys.com in a dual concert of Irish and Bluegrass music. We're calling it 'Celtic Blue'. It will be on Saturday 23 June at The Burren.
Please email if you'd like to book either the Ensemble or Orchestra for your special event. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Orchestra please email me!
As always, thank you for all your interest and support.
