Latest news from Friends of Wighton!

From Sheena Wellington :

We have a very special online Lunchtime Recital starting at 1.15pm on Wednesday 3rd March.

Medieval Harp virtuoso Simon Chadwick needs no introduction to the Wighton audience! As Musician in Residence, harp tutor and hard working secretary he was a mainstay of Friends of Wighton for many years.

Since he moved to Armagh in 2018 though we have kept in touch he has been sorely missed so it is a particular delight to welcome him on the 3rd.

A Chadwick recital is always a treat and an adventure. During the last year's lockdowns, Simon has been working on old Irish harp tunes from the Bunting collection, finding unusual tunes, and unusual versions of better known tunes. He will play some of them for you on Wednesday including some with interesting connections to versions in the Wighton collection.
The Zoom link is below, the Recital is free but donations can be made on our webpage www.friendsofwighton.com

Sheena Wellington is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
