What is a Harpist?
One of the oldest instruments in the world the harp dates all the way back to 3500 BCE, with depictions of the instrument found on many Egyptian wall paintings. Prominent in a range of cultures, the harp is a stringed instrument which the harpists plays by plucking the strings which are connected to a soundboard. The harp is commonly associated with heaven and Christianity as many angels are painted playing harps. There are several different harps that harpists play, including the Irish lap harp, Gothic lap harp, Irish high-headed harp and the concert grand pedal harp, the differing sizes make the sound of each harp distinctive so when you hire harpists take care to look at which harp they play to make sure it fits the style of event.

What is Difference Between a Pedal Harp and a Lever Harp?
Two main categories that harps fit into are lever harps and pedal harps, although for some slightly more specific there are specialty harps. The main difference between lever and pedal harps are the style of music they are designed to play, where a pedal harp is more suited to classical music a lever harp allows the harpist to play Celtic music more precisely. Also, as a pedal harp is bigger it will be louder, and a lever harp will sound more effective in a smaller room or venue. When you hire harpists, this could be an important factor to consider.
