About the Harp Blog

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.

The Harp Blog is run by Tanah, webmaster and creator of the Celtic Harp Page, also a working musician, music teacher, composer, arranger, and writer. She currently directs the Hurly Burly medieval ensemble and plays in a number of groups including the Stringwood Trio.

If you have a harp-related event, picture, video, or any other harp-related news that you would like to share, feel free to let us know in the comments section of the current post, or by emailing comments @ celticharper.com (without the spaces).

The Harp Blog is open to all musicians of all levels and ages.

Note that not all pages included in the links section may be suitable for all ages. The Riddle of Pockets (writing site) is generally benign, but may contain some strong language. All music and harp-related links, however, should be suitable for all readers.

  1. Hi guys!

    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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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/

  4. Would you have harp music just instrumental to use in the background of a recording? Thank you for your time and consideration.
