  The Washington Area Folk Harp Society started in 1982 as a group of friends meeting every other month to play tunes together. From this start, the group has grown into a full-fledged society and a chapter of the International Society of Folk Harpers and Craftsmen, Inc.

Continuing with the intent to meet people and learn tunes, our activities include:

  • Educational workshops
  • Harp rental program
  • Listing of local harp teachers in the area
  • Regular newsletter and bi-monthly calendar of events
  • Participation in a variety of music festivals, including the Southern Maryland Celtic Festival and the Northern Virginia Scottish Games
  • Harp gatherings to play music together
  • Yearly "Harpers Getaway" in November in Gettysburg, PA, with nationally and internationally recognized teachers
  • Annual Harp Concert

WAFHS relies on the talented and generous volunteers who help run the society. Here is the list of volunteers.
