Michelle Mulcahy has redefined the contemporary harp landscape with remarkable musicianship. With accolades like TG4 Young Musician of the Year (2006) and Female Musician of the Year, her solo album “Suaimhneas” gained international recognition. Collaborating with American label Shanachie and Irish label Cló-Iar Chonnacht, Michelle’s albums are celebrated. In 2017, her album with collaborators Louise and Mick Mulcahy, “The Reel Note” earned TradConnects Traditional Album of the Year. In 2023, Michelle, Mick, and Louise received the TG4 Gradam Ceoil award for their contribution to Irish traditional music. A scholar with a Ph.D. in Ethnomusicology, her 2023 solo harp release “Lady on the Island” is hailed ‘as one of the most important recordings in recent Irish music history’ (Siobhan Long, Irish Times).
This concert will take place in the Project Room in Malahide Castle’s Visitor Centre. With the beautiful Walled Garden as a backdrop, the Project Room is a stunning location to see one of Irelands’ finest traditional musicians.
