The 22nd annual Harpers Escape with Grainne Hambly, William Jackson, Kathy DeAngelo & Debbie Brewin Wilson has a focus on Irish and Scottish music. Pick your comfort level for the workshops, learn pieces by ear, play in a group and just enjoy this weekend retreat.See More
I've been playing the harp since 1984 and traditional Irish music since 1971. I teach harp and fiddle by ear. I perform with my husband Dennis Gormley as McDermott's Handy. Debbie Brewin-Wilson and I started the Harpers Escape Weekend in 1992 and I took over the Somerset Harp Festival in 2008.
Thanks for your quick response. I know that meals and housing are included for the event - I am asking about Sunday night. I'll have an 8 hr or better drive home so I want to stay until Monday morning and drive home then.
It's a busy time of the year--March Madness for those of us who play Irish music. After that, for me it's the NJ Folk Festival on April 27. Trip to Ireland in May. July is Somerset from July 17-21--what else? Then the Harpers' Escape from Oct. 4-6.
