201808 Heritage Week Concert

A live concert, interviews & audiovisual presentation celebrating the restoration of four unique traditional music instruments from the ITMA Collection

ITMA holds the largest multimedia collection dedicated to Irish traditional music, including a number of interesting instruments - instruments with a story. Our Heritage Week event is the culmination of a wonderful journey : delving into the history of a box fiddle, a hammer dulcimer, a melodeon and a walking stick flute; working with some of Ireland's finest instrument repairers, and finally unlocking their sounds for a new generation, in a live concert in 73 Merrion Square.
