'All the flowers in the forest': Prize-winning singers and historical harpists in concert, performing ancient music and song from Ireland and Scotland.

The famous Sarah Gríallais, who embodies ancient Connemara-style singing, is joined by historical harpist, James Ruff, known for his moving performances of old Gaelic harp music. And prize-winning singer, Eibhlís Ní Ríordáin, sings harp songs of the seventeenth- and eighteenth centuries, accompanying herself on an early Irish harp, as the harpers did for centuries before the tradition died out.
