This list of Celtic Harp Links comes from the hundreds that I’ve compiled over several years. Of course there are many more helpful harp-related sites on the web, but these are my favorites.
Finding a Harp
Are you lucky enough to have a harp store in your area? If so, please support it and enjoy the rare opportunity to look at harps and music in person.
The Harp Connection
A place to rent a lever harp, especially handy if you don’t have any harp stores in your area. The Harp Connection also sells new and used harps, harp strings, music, and accessories.
Harp Music Sources
Here in Denver, we are lucky to have a local harp store that has been a fixture in the harp world for decades.. Stop by for harp talk, harp repair, harp shopping, or harp music if you’re in town. Kolacny Music also sells an extensive collection of harp music via their site.
