Judy’s harps

Harp ProfileJudy’s lever harp was made in Oregon by Dave Thormahlen. It is a gut-strung Concert Swan and stands 56 inches high. Being made of walnut with a cedar soundboard, the sound is warm and delicious.

For more compromised outdoor locations, Judy plays a lovely walnut low head Irish style harp made by Stoney End.
