Performance Video: Sir Festus Burke for Double-Strung Harp (Turlough O’Carolan, arr. Shelhart)

Irish harper and composer Turlough O’Carolan (1670-1738) composed tunes for several members of the Burke family from County Galway, including this one for baronet Sir Festus Burke (d. 1730?).

Filmed at my home studio and posted to YouTube in March 2024.

PS: Want to play it yourself? You can find this O’Carolan arrangement (along with 12 others) in my book Double the O’Carolan Tunes, book 2 in The Double Dozen series (PDF, or PDF/print book package):
