Kathleen Loughnane has released a great new CD ‘The Harpers Connellan’ Irish music of the late 17th century.
According to Arthur O Neill’s (b.1734) account of the life and times of the Irish Harpers, Thomas Connellan’s celebrity was very great in Ireland and it would seem that he was no less popular in Scotland. The council records of Jan 11th, 1717 record that Thomas Connellan was awarded city honours and made Burgomaster of Edinburgh. It seems he was awarded this honour as a result of his musical contribution to the city.
