One of my favourite harpers of all time. Anyone who says the folk harp is limited has never seen him play.
Super groovy improv, guaranteed to brighten up your day. Via alizbar (Hungary). Sorry, not much info included with this one.
The daily schedule, including workshops and all activities has been posted on the site:
The Harp Gathering will take place from May 18-20, 2012 in Archbold, Ohio.
Major props to harpist Alex Bigney for giving the pedal harp a truly Celtic voice. Every other time I’ve heard Celtic music played on pedal harp it either sounded stilted or over-played. This set rocks!

The New Year’s update of the Celtic Harp Page is well under-way. Our harp-related Events section has been updated for 2012, and we’ve reactivated the popular Used and Wanted Harps classified section after a long hiatus due to increased interest from scammers back in 2010.
If you have your company or group listed on the Celtic Harp Page, please check to make sure that all your information is correct and up-to-date. If not, let us know by sending a note to comments @ celticharper.com (without the spaces).

One of my favourite tunes. TinWhistler playing with Ulli from Germany.
