Ceis (Laoise Kelly)

Laoise Kelly is regarded as the most significant harper of her generation. From Westport in Co. Mayo she began playing at an early age, encouraged by her father who introduced her to the music of O’Carolan. Her reinterpretation of the O’Carolan canon is just a part of her breathtaking repertoire. She has adapted the dance music of Ireland for the harp bringing an instrument often associated with the convent and the lace curtain into the heart of session playing. Her tune playing is truly magnificent. Her playing is shot through with a humour and an energy that is infectious. She is regarded as one of Ireland’s most significant musicians and she has given a new lease of life to a National instrument.
