Welcome to the Harp Blog! We’re all about harps – big and small, Celtic and Classical, events, accessories, stories, videos, you name it – if it’s harp-related, we want to know about it.
For more videos and harp news you can visit us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/OntarioHarp.
For general harp information of all sorts, including hundreds of harp-related links, check out The Celtic Harp Page.
Update: As of August 2017 this is an archived site. We will hopefully be reviving the Harp Blog on the new celticharper site in the fall of 2017.
My name is Jess and I’m a journalist and podcast producer at BreakThru Radio, a multi-media platform covering independent news. One of the podcasts I host is called Biology of the Blog and revolves around interviewing one awesome blogger (such as yourself!) every week on the show. I’m wondering if you might be willing to come on air as a guest speaker in the next couple weeks and chat about your blog Harp Blog?
The interview is not done live (don’t worry), so I can edit out any verbal pauses. I’ve found the best medium is Skype (mine) to phone (yours), and can give you a call from our studio.
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please send me a reply along with some idea of availability over the next week or so and we can figure out more details.
Thanks so much for your time and consideration!
The harpist’s name is Melody Tai. http://www.alexandraperdew.com/melody-tai.html
Does anyone know who the female harpist was that backed Usher at the 2015 Grammy Awards? No mention of her name anywhere & yet I thought she was the whole performance! Thanks.
Hi Melanee – What kind of recording are you planning to make? Most harpists would have to charge a fee for their music to be used in a commercial recording, but there may be some who would be willing to let their music be used for free for a non-profit project. I personally don’t have anything like that available. You could try posing your question on the Harplist, where you can reach lots of harpists at once: http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/Harplist/
Would you have harp music just instrumental to use in the background of a recording? Thank you for your time and consideration.
Hi Amanda – We’re based in Ontario, Canada, but we post about harp-related events around the world.
Where do you guys/places live? what state? city?
