About Us page

The mission of WireStrungharp.com is to sustain and encourage the revival of the Wire-Strung Harp, which is also sometimes called the Clàrsach or Cláirseach, and sometimes Gaelic Harp, though these later names can also be applied to harps which are not metal-strung. We are an international team of volunteers working to provide a dependable and accurate body of work, information and resources.

Locating objective information on the internet can be a challenge. We hope that this website will serve both as a resource for dependable information and a place where people can engage, question and participate as scholars, enthusiasts and students of the wire-strung harp.

Our two main goals are:
