It's Harp Music Day (6-26-09)

The harp is one of the oldest stringed instrument. They can be seen in Egyptian tomb paintings and are part of many legends and folklore. During the middle ages, they were about 28" high - small enough to be carried around by troubadours as they traveled the countryside. By the 17th century, they were much larger instuments with a stronger sound and more strings. Harps are regaining popularity today as people rediscover the unique sound of Celtic music.
