Featuring James Ruff, Tenor and Early Gaelic Harp

On this longest night of the year, we gather to honor the gifts we receive from seasons of darkness, winter, and rest. Holding fast to these lessons, we welcome the turning of the year towards more light. Reception of sweets and beverages to follow.

Since 2005, tenor James Ruff has focused his energies on researching and performing both the Early Scottish Gaelic Song and the Early Gaelic Wire Harp repertoires. His first CD, The Gaels’ Honour: Early Music for Harp and Voice from Gaelic Scotland and Ireland, was released in December 2018. Learn more at https://jamesrufftenorharper.com/
