The Harp Gathering, Folk Harp Festival
Tip of the Week...
Check in weekly for tips and tricks from the pros!
Tip: Have you ever sat behind your harp to practice and nothing goes right? It just seems that you can’t hit that note? You have it in the wrong key? Well, you need to accept the fact that sometimes your harp just doesn’t want to be played. Don’t force your practice time when it gets into one of those ‘moods’. Just walk away and come back to it another time.
Tip: Take advantage of those few extra minutes you have while waiting for your ride or waiting for your spouse! Sit down at the harp and work out a difficult passage, or improvise a little on a I, vi, ii, V, I chord progression. Perhaps you will find the beginning of a brand new composition!

New Tips for all of you Harp Gatherlings!!!
OK, so there are 2 new "Tips of the Week," posted above, for all of you faithful Harp Gatherlings.
Also, we have been getting asked, a lot earlier then usual, about when the registration forms for the 10th Anniversary Harp Gathering, in 2017, are going to be available. The quick answer is...we are working on them now and they should be ready by sometime next week. In the meantime however... Do reserve your room at the Sauder Village, Heritage Inn as soon as possible... I have been informed that rooms are booking fast (We almost booked every room at the Heritage Inn this past year - WooHoo!!!). For room reservations call (800) 590-9755 or (419) 445-6408 and let them know you're with the Harp Gathering - Booking ID# 6571. Room rates are economically priced: Standard $102.00 per night (plus tax) / Deluxe $124.00 (plus tax) and both are just beautiful, for any of you Harp Gatherlings that haven't attended before (and they're still as beautiful for all of you who have attended - HeeHee)! In addition to those gorgeous rooms, you can swim in the crystal clear indoor pool, hang out in the game room or take a stoll through the historic Sauder Village with reduced tickets specially priced for Harp Gathering registrants and their companions!
Well, that's about it for now and as always, we look forward to seeing you at the 10th Anniversary of the Harp Gathering!
