Michael has been performing on Celtic harps for over 2 decades. Our Celtic harp is a 29 string Stoney End Lorraine Harp. Michael has two smaller Celtic harps, but this one is our harp for the standard Celtic harp ‘wedding package’. We performed 55 weddings in 2005 on this harp. This cherry-wood harp is 56 inches high, 13 inches wide, 23 inches deep, and weighs 15 pounds. This harp is very portable, has a beautiful full sound, and can be used for all the styles of music listed on the set list page. Almost all of the harp music samples on this website use this harp. This the harp used on our CDs:
Stairway to Heaven: Passion and Compassion
Reflections of the Heart
