The American Harp Society Conference and the Somerset Folk Harp Festival are coming up, and we're preparing to pack up and ship a whole bunch of harps! Don't forget that you don't need to be registered as an attendee in order to visit the booths. Both festivals have a low-priced one-day ticket that will get you into the vendor hall so you can try harps to your heart's content. We hope to see you there!

After many years of shipping pallets of harps, accessories, tools and booth gear from our workshop in Seattle to harp festivals in other parts of the country, we've got the process finely honed. (See this post for some pictures of how it all works.) We usually have it all planned out, and we like being able to tell you ahead of time exactly which harps will be at each upcoming festival. However, because of the timing this year, we'll be sending some things straight from Atlanta to New Jersey without being able to re-organize at home in between, and we don't know yet exactly which harps will be at Somerset. We've made our best guesses and included the usual teaser photos, but don't hold us to the specifics!
