Roundwood Historical Society Gathering 2013 Event

By Cathal Mac Oireachtaigh

Roundwood Historical Society will be hosting an 

'Ancient Music of Ireland’ event on Saturday 20th July as part of The Gathering 2013 .
Musical instruments from Ireland's Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age and Early Medieval times will be resurrected in a fascinating presentation that will include a wide range of horns, bone whistles, bronze trumpets & bells, bone & stone flutes,  along with a replica of one of Ireland's oldest musical instruments, the Wicklow Pipes.

Join us on a musical journey from the first habitation in Ireland circa 8,000 BC through to the Early Medieval period 700 AD when the ancient period ends and history begins.
This event will suit both young (8+) & old and will be both educational and highly entertaining with lots of playing of instruments.
