THE HISTORY OF THE HARP

THE HISTORY OF THE HARP

SARAH DEERE-JONES

February 2nd 2022 at the 37 Club, Puriton

TA7 8AD

2.00 for a 2.15 start

Using illustrations from carvings, wall paintings, pottery, mosaics, sculpture, stained glass, illuminated manuscripts, and 18th and 19th century art, Sarah traces the history of one of the world’s most ancient and beloved musical instruments from thousands of years BC, to its arrival in northern Europe, including the huge developments and improvements during the Renaissance and 19th centuries that created the highly mechanised and beautiful instrument we see played in orchestras and as solo instruments today. Performing on her own reproduction and antique instruments, Sarah will demonstrate the development and evolving sound and repertoire of the harp throughout its history.

 

Sarah is a graduate and prize-winner from the Royal Academy of Music and in 2015 was elected an Associate. She performs, writes and lectures about the harp regularly in America, Australia, Europe and UK. All lectures include live music and songs on harps and other instruments depending on subject matter.

Visitors are always welcome at a charge of £8 per lecture
