Harps and Harpers page

Information on historical harps and players can be accessed through this page, from evidence of instruments and harpers from centuries past to instruments that have survived to the present day. (For mythological or legendary harps and harpers, please see our Culture page.)

The revival has produced many players today, from amateur to professional, beginner through intermediate to advanced. These people play on relatively new instruments. Through this page you will find some discussion of those instruments as well. Visit our Links page for specific makers and also for links to living players and teachers. Do also look under Revival and Transformation for more on what is new in the field.
