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
- 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.
