Daughter in law of Nobel prize winner William Butler Yeats, Gráinne Yeats passed away on April 18th this year. She is, together with Sheila Larchet Cuthbert and Mercedes Bolger, credited with the Irish harp revival and particularly that of the wire-strung harp. Gráinne was an internationally accomplished harp player, singer, teacher and historian. Born in a family close to its Irish roots, she knew some hundreds of songs learned during her childhood in the Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking region).
