au lac de Constance
|Rorschach • Switzerland • June 2 to 5, 2006|
It is with great pleasure that I invite all lovers of Celtic music and culture toparticipate as musicians or visitors in the Thirteenth Celtic Days.
My heartfelt thanks goes to all honorary assistants, above all Iris Gerig and Veronika Egli, as well as the City of Rorschach and the Catholic community of Rorschach. They have all been instrumental in making Celtic Days a success.
A hearty welcome to the Eleventh Celtic Days on Lake Constance.
|The Celtic Harp is an instrument in its own right. The size, gauge, tension and spacing of the strings are different from the other types of harps. This asks for a playing technique of its own and a special repertoire. There are studies of Celtic harp at the academies of Music and Drama in the Celtic countries Ireland, Scotland and Brittany.|
