Traditional Irish Music

Harp of Tara hosts Traditional Irish music events year-round.  We invite experienced musicians and beginners alike to come join us.

Traditional Irish Music Sessions

Seisiúin Cheoil Thraidisiúnta

A session is a bunch of friends in a circle, playing tunes together. A slow session is a session for people new to their instruments, or even for experienced musicians new to the Irish repertoire. There's a limited, easy to learn repertoire, and the tunes are played at an accessible pace.

The slow session welcomes people of all ages, at all levels, on all instruments. We provide a music book, and cds of the tunes played slowly. It's an excellent way for beginners to see how much fun a trad session can be and also a good place for the more experienced to pick up a tune or two. The atmosphere is friendly and the tunes are wonderful.

Monthly Céilí

Our monthly Céilís bring musicians and dancers together for a fun-filled evening. This music is dance music. All musicians are welcome to play along with the band, while the dancers drive the beat at Harp of Tara's monthly Céilí.

 
 
 
 

House Concerts

Ceolchoirmeacha Tí

Harp of Tara also sponsors a regular series of House Concerts and Workshops with visiting Irish Musicians. Kingston had not been a stop on musical tours until we started these house concerts, which have brought some memorable moments for all involved.
