    I am looking for a harp pal I can write to, or email to. I am 36 years old, female and have been playing for five years. I would love to be able to have others to talk to, I am hailing from Adelaide, Australia, I would welcome any harpist who would just like to exchange experiences and talk about anything to do with harp. Age and sex open.

    I have a Kempster 34 string folk harp, I am currently learning’ Music of the NIght”. I have been playing Kim Robertson, and Loreena McKennett’s music, but I love it all . My email address is: magiv@picknowl.com.au
    I would love to hear from anyone,
    all the best for now,
    Magi

    Hello Magi,

    I am just learning to play the harp. My husband had a lap harp made for me and I got it in Oct.. I am really enjoying it. I am 45 y/o and live along the Gulf Coast of Mexico, in Florida. I have always loved listening to harp music but never had any idea that I would be able to play one. We went to a folk festive last year in May. That is were I was able to hold a harp and have someone show me how to try and play it. There were harpist from all over the country and one from Ireland. They even had people who made harps, showing how they are made and you could listen to them being played. I was very surprised when I found out about my harp and could hardly wait for it. As, I stated I have only been playing for nine months. I would like to hear from others that have harps. I should tell you something about myself. I am married with one child, a boy who is 27 y/o. We share our home with 4 cats, 1 small dog and my mother. I work in the medical field. My hobbies are stiching, mountain biking, camping, hiking, and boating. Hope to hear from you.

    HI!

    I just bought a 19 string Pixie harp on an auction, and am learning to play. I’m 38, live in NY and am enjoying it very much. I’m already looking into getting a bigger harp. Right now I’m practicing out of of Sylvia Woods’ books and video.

    Hi! I started playing the harp this year.It has been a lifetime dream of mine and I finally was able to afford the expense. I absolutely love it! I was glad to see that other adults are doing the same. I’m 40 and have 4 kids, homeschool and work part-time as a nurse so I can never practise as much as I would like but…I can finally say I play the harp!!!! YEAH! It would be great to talk to others who share this same interest.

    Hello! I too am trying to play the lever harp and would like to hear from all of you.
    The harp is not a common instrument particularly over here in Malaysia.

    Wow, I would not have believed so many mature adults were just starting on a new venture.
