About us

Welcom to Harp Column magazine, the No. 1 source of news and information for harpists worldwide. Harp Column was founded as a small newsletter in 1993 by Kimberly Rowe and Hugh Brock. In 1996 we expanded to a magazine format and a few years later we launched the first Harp Column Community online. In 2013 we launched Harp Column Music, and in 2016 we launched Harp Column Academy. Alison Reese joined our staff in 2003 and became Editor of our print edition in 2013; in 2014 she became a partner. Kimberly now serves as Web Editor and designer, and Hugh continues to serve as our technical advisor.
