In Concert 1992 and Live in Downpatrick 1993


Belfast Harp Orchestra (BHO)

comprises 20-25 harpers from both Catholic and Protestant communities in Northern Ireland (mostly) who perform together commemorating the bicentenary of the Belfast Harpers’ Assembly of 1792.

“Live in Downpatrick”

is recorded from the one concert performance in the Cathedral of Down – the day after the BHO returned from their tour of America with the Chieftains where they performed in halls including New York’s Carnegie Hall and Washington DC’s Kennedy Centre.

Both of these albums were originally released as a cassette and this CD made in 2017 is produced as a ’BHO25 Legacy Album’.


We ask our listeners to be forgiving of the shortcomings of the quality - and our youthful excitement as one or two tracks were performed rather faster than we would perform them now.
