In this course you will learn about playing, arranging and accompaniment on the Clàrsach in Highland and traditional music. Ingrid Henderson from Lochaber has been teaching the Clàrsach for over 20 years having learnt herself from the world renowned harpist Savourna Stevenson. As well as performing on stages throughout the world as a solo artist or with bands such as 'Cliar', Ingrid is currently the principal harp tutor at the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music and lectures on the BA Gaelic & Traditional Music at the college.
As part of this course, there will be a chance to work with the ‘A Seascape of Gaelic Song - Part 2 course which is taking place at the College during the same week under the direction of world renowned Gaelic singer, Maighread Stewart. This will allow for collaborative work and a chance to accompany the singers.
We are delighted to announce that an additional tutor will be joining us for the clàrsach course in 2018, and this means that everyone is welcome to take part in the course, no matter your ability on the clàrsach, from beginner level to upper intermediate and advanced.
It is also recommended that you bring your own instrument with you in order to take part in the course.
