About the Harps

I have four harps from which you may choose, based on where your event is taking place and the type of music you would like me to play. All of my harps were built in the United States.

Blevinsong Lever Harp

This harp is the most portable of all the instruments, and is used for providing music at most beach weddings or other venues that are difficult to access with the larger harps. It is available for any wedding ceremony and for non-wedding events. All music marked with a "+" on the repertoire list can be performed on this harp. 

It has 36 strings and was built by Dwight Blevins in Colorado.   Standing about 4 and 1/2 feet tall, it has a natural maple finish and the appearance of a traditional Celtic / Irish harp.  This is the harp that most often flies with me for destination weddings.

It has a matte ebony finish, and the column is wrapped in laurel leaves that are plated in 22k gold.
