Join Irish harpist and singer Hannah Flowers for an evening of harp tunes and traditional songs as she celebrates the release of her new album Hall-Gate House.
Hannah Flowers is a professional harpist and traditional singer from St. Paul, Minnesota. She fell in love with the harp as a young child and was classically trained before discovering Irish music in her teens. Since then she has had the opportunity to travel to Ireland yearly over the past decade to study harp with Gráinne Hambly, Michelle Mulcahy, and Michael Rooney. She competed internationally at Fleadh Cheoil na Éireann in Sligo, Ireland in 2014. In 2016 Hannah was awarded a “Next Step Fund” Grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council to study ancient Gaelic harp in Kilkenny, Ireland. The following year she received a “Gaeltacht Summer Award” from Fulbright Commission to study the Irish language and spent three happy summers learning the language in Glencolmcille, Co. Donegal. She holds a BA in Music. This past year she was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship and Government of Ireland International Education Scholarship to pursue an MA in Irish Traditional Music at Maynooth University in Ireland.
