Nick Hennessey – A Harper’s Trade

Nick Hennessey – A Harper’s Trade

Furness Tradition Presents Nick Hennessey – A Harper’s Trade: Wednesday 12 December: 8pm : £12

There was a time when ‘to harp’ meant to speak, when harpers travelled the length and breadth of the country telling stories and singing songs.

As they travelled, the stories and the songs they carried with them were shaped by the places they went, by the roads they took and by the wind that blew them.

Over the last 18 years Nick has been developing a vibrant and exciting style of performance which harpers of old would recognize. Drawing deeply from the wellspring of traditional sources, this performance of song and story re-interprets the material for a modern 21st century, with powerful and evocative language and an innovative style of harp playing.

Furness Tradition continues this 2018/19 series of events with a performance from Nick Hennessey.  Nick is an internationally acclaimed storyteller, playwright, folk singer, song writer and musician. Nick has been a performing storyteller for over 20 years and in this show he features his particular use of the harp in storytelling and the long entwined history of stories and the harp in our traditions.  Be prepared to be entranced, delighted but more importantly moved by this intimate and unique show.
