I have two excellent folk harps available for rent. My various harp students went and bought harps off the floor at last summer's Somerset Folk Harp Festival -- Marini harps all around!! I love those Marini harps, and my students heard the difference too.
So now my rentals have come home. One is a Marini harp, and the other is a very good Blevins harp (that Alex Marini repaired for me last year!).
You can rent either one, and take lessons -- become a harpist yourself! What an opportunity...
I've had an amp for many years, but I got a new one, and I'm very pleased with it. For one thing, it works well on batteries, so now I can easily pump out the sound of the harp even for outdoor events where there is no convenient electric. Very nice!
Book me to play for your outdoor ceremony without fear that the harp won't be heard.
Wanna try something really cool? Open my website in two different windows, with the sound up. Then you'll listen to the jukebox twice at once... It sounds really cool, right? Let me know what you think!
Well, this is big news. My new favorite harpmaker, Marini Made Harps, has developed a new line of harps that are budget priced, but sound utterly fantastic.
They are AMAZING!!
You know, I've been playing the harp for over 40 years, and I've played many different harps, and I've enjoyed many of them. But the Marini harps that I've known have totally knocked my socks off, for their perfectly gorgeous sound. I have one; a student has one, that I still swoon over every time I hear it. And now I've had…
In July, 2013, I fell in love with a harp at the Somerset Folk Harp Festival. Reader, I bought it!! It's a 34 string folk harp made by Alex Marini/Marini Made Harps, called an Ultra Lite. It sounds like perfection... And it looks pretty, too! (And it's lightweight, to boot...)
I'm developing a Musician's Page at Facebook, where I can also keep you updated on the latest in the life of a harpist. Please! Like me! Not on the personal page, but on the Musician's Page. I have to figure out how to distinguish them... Here, here's a link: OK, it doesn't look like that worked...
