Just out of curiosity…
(I’m in the Montreal area).
Hiya. Thanks for all the responses. I hope others will answer too!
I am currently playing a Grape Harpsicle (my first harp), but have begun considering the move to a bigger, “better” harp. (THough I really love my harpsicle and it pains me to say “better”!!!)
I like Muma harps (London, Ont) and have heard good things about JOsephus. Also have heard tons of good stuff about Blevins, but wasn’t sure if anyone in Canada usually ordered Blevins or other American harps (after exchange, shipping, etc) or if most people just stuck with something more local…
So far I’m finding harpers are few and far between in Canada. Maybe I’m just not looking in the right place!!
Nice to meet you all.
Hi! I’m the harpist in the Vancouver Symphony in BC. I play on a Style 11 that I bought
second-hand from Erica Goodman about 25 years ago, and a gold Style 23. I also play a
beautiful Ron Wall folk harp. Ron Wall lives in Alberta right now, I believe, but he comes
into Vancouver from time to time to sell his harps through Celtic Creations. Each of his
harps is different, since he experiments with woods. Mine has a gorgeous, deep, tone, but
is rather heavy to carry. Still, it’s a lot lighter than a pedal harp!
