Regular activities


Harp of Tara sponsors and supports various activities and events throughout the year.  Offering a rich variety of music, language, and dance.


​Harp of Tara has hosted a year-round weekly slow session since 2001. Friendly, social, a welcoming way for beginning musicians to experience the joys of Irish music and sessions, or for experienced musicians from other traditions to develop the Irish repertoire.


Another opportunity to get out and play some tunes is our regular monthly Siamsa, which has been running since 2000  
With a mandate, among others, to promote Uilleann pipes, Harp of Tara has taken the lead in the promotion of the Uilleann pipes, with workshops with master pipers. 


Weekly Dance Practice We have been getting together to learn and enjoy Irish Social Dance for 9 years
Monthly Céilís - The principal social event for Irish Music and Dance in Kingston has been running since 2001.
