More than two dozen harpers will perform at The East Brunswick Public Library on Sunday, Oct. 7, at 1:30 p.m.
The visit is part of the 20th Annual Harpers Escape weekend, held in New Brunswick. The event features noted harpers Grainne Hambly from Ireland, William Jackson from Scotland and U.S.-based harp teachers Kathy DeAngelo and Debbie Brewin-Wilson, who teach traditional Irish and Scottish music on the folk harp. Harpers come from all over the country to be part of this exciting event, with their weekend culminating in a free public concert here at The Library.
The concert includes the artist-teachers and ensembles composed of all participants. This free program is sponsored by You’ve Gotta Have Harp Productions, The Arts Commission and The Library.
