The Celtic Harp Circle will be playing a special performance at the New England Carousel Museum on July 12 at 2 p.m. The Circle plays a blend of Celtic, a little bit of Swedish, Jewish and Turkish music as well. The Harp Circle is a musical ensemble featuring a variety of Celtic or Folk Harps played by a diverse group of 9 Harpers.

This group is directed by Haley Hewitt, who in September was crowned USA National Scottish Harp Champion by the Scottish Harp Society of America! She is one of the most exciting, innovative, and gifted harp players of the up-and-coming generation. Playing original music, but also interested in traditional music from around the world, Haley has been breaking boundaries and pushing the limits of what is possible for the instrument.

Guests are sure to enjoy this concert in the unique environment of the Carousel Museum.  Refreshments and light fair compliments of Artist Tree Tea House will be served as a High Tea including cucumber sandwiches and Jasmine and Lavender Iced Tea Lemonade.

Cookies and snacks will also be compliments of the museum to ensure a lovely afternoon. Join in the mood and wear a special hat if you like! Reservations are strongly suggested as this has a limit of seating for this event. Museum admission is $6 per person for adults, $5.50 for Seniors, and $3.50 for children. The concert is free with admission.
