THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL
EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL HARP FESTIVAL
The festival is now over and we are all packed up at Merchiston Castle School. We hope that you all enjoyed the wonderful concerts, courses and workshops which, combined with the ceilidh, harp exhibition, open platform and just being able to talk “harp” with fellow harp enthusiasts really did help make our 36th Festival one to remember.
