In May, acclaimed harpist Gráinne Hamby will visit a selection of pre-booked community nursing units in County Mayo, bringing the joy of music to those living in residential nursing care. Gráinne has attracted glowing praise for her live performances and recorded material, which brilliantly showcase what has been described as her ‘absolute mastery of the Irish harp’. Residents will enjoy a musical delight during the month of May.
Gráinne Hambly, from Mayo Abbey, is an internationally recognised exponent of the Irish harp, and is in great demand as a performer and teacher, both at home and abroad. She studied music at Queen’s University Belfast and has toured and recorded with various artists, including performances as far afield as Japan, Brazil and Colombia as well as frequent tours to the USA.
