IvoryHarp (Salvi Sinfonietta Semi-Grand)

When most people think of the harp, it is the instrument of the
angels that comes to mind. A delicate, beautiful instrument of
an ethereal world. But the harp is an instrument of endless
possibilities. Have you ever heard ragtime, Harlem Nocturne,
or The Pink Panther performed on the harp?

The concert harp is considered the world's most difficult
instrument to play. With 47 strings and 7 pedals, each of
which has three positions, the odds of playing a wrong note
are insurmountably higher than playing the right one. But
this is the magic of the harp: to make it all look easy, and to
hide the pedals with a long, flowing skirt!

This instrument was custom-made for me by Salvi Harps in Italy,
and, aside from its striking tone, the ivory color makes it a beautiful
complement to any venue and occasion, particularly weddings.

Celtic Harp (Dusty Strings FH36S)

The Celtic, or lever, harp is obviously a
much smaller instrument than the concert harp, but the main
difference is that there are no pedals, so pitch changes are
controlled by levers across the harp's neck. This means that more
chromatic repertoire is much more difficult or impossible to play.
This instrument is perfect for traditional and light popular music
with a present and full, but not overwhelming, tone and is lovely in a more
intimate or rustic/natural setting or at events with an Celtic, rustic, or folk theme.

Concert Harp (Salvi Arianna Concert Grand)

This harp, also from Salvi Harps in Italy, is a true performance artist!
With an incomparable acoustic tone that fills any room, church, or concert hall,
this harp takes center stage and is perfect for concerts of any size
from solo recitals to chamber music and orchestral performances.
Its stunning look, created from over 5 types of inlaid eye-catching
woods from all over the globe, is a perfect complement to its sound.

Electroacoustic Harps (Camac Blue and Salvi Una)

Most people would consider the harp
a quiet instrument- well, not any more!
This electric blue harp was made by Camac Harps in France, has toured as a flagship instrument with Camac's president Jakez Francois and graced the stages of Bjork's concerts. Now it can grace your venue as well! This harp is electroacoustic, meaning it can be played without amplification, or can connect directly to any sound system for endless possibilities ranging from a bit of extra volume for a lively party to professional sound effects to rock out with! I particularly enjoy playing Classic rock tunes on this harp, including "Dream On". The green instrument is an electroacoustic Celtic harp (read more about the Celtic harp below) that offers the same amplification in a smaller, more portable package.
