Gaelic Harper performs at the Rome Library

Jeff Pockat performs on the ancient wire strung Gaelic harp. With this incredibly beautiful instrument he tells stories of the harp, the music, the players and the times they lived in.  For over a thousand years the harp has been revered in Ireland. In 1984 Mr. Pockat had his first experience with the Irish harp and two months later he bought a harp. He is self-taught Irish Harp musician. Join us at the Lester Library for this free concert.
