Akustik Gitarre Magazine Harp Guitar Time Capsule

In 2011, one of the participants at HGG9 (the 9th Harp Guitar Gathering) was Michael Lohr, who had come all the way from Germany.  He had gotten the bug after seeing Stephen Bennett and soon bought one of the China Holloways, which he brought with him.  He fit our group like a glove, had a […]

NAMM, 2018

Sadly, my heart was just not into NAMM this year, as we lost our eldest dog Auggie last Sunday (Facebook friends, thanks for your sympathies).

Fun with Harp Guitar Physics or Will the Real Stephen Bennett Please Stand Up?

A young physics student at Cambridge in the U.K. just sent me his rather intense paper on plucked string physics – specifically, frequency response of guitars and harps.  As the study included a nylon strung Celtic harp and classical guitar, he thought it would be interesting to also include a hollow arm harp guitar that […]

Plucked String Books of 2017

Hey all – I’m way behind, and before I forget, wanted to share this recent crop of books that may interest you.  Some harp guitar-related, lots of mandolin info and other esoteric stuff.  All are labors of love – meaning, these folks who I am proud to call friends and colleagues just want to share […]
