Southern Cal Harp Guitar Happenings

For friends and readers not on Facebook, I’ve added a couple public posts there recently: HGGG:   Trevor Gordon Hall show

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). But I needed an excuse to get out of the house, and had a business meeting with the team building the new Timberline harp guitars, so made the trek.  It […]

Harp Guitar Gathering 15: Another Guest Travelogue

Here’s a second look at the last Harp Guitar Gathering – #15, which I hosted and will post about myself one day!  Technically, it was hosted by The Museum of Making Music…and organized and run mostly by my wife, Jaci.  But I make a great figurehead. This experience (presented in PDF form below) was written […]

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 […]

The 15th Anniversary Harp Guitar Gathering: A First Timer’s Experience

As much as I’d love to do my weekly photo blog series to capture the epic 15th Anniversary Harp Guitar Gathering Jaci and I hosted this year, I’m leaving that for others for now. We start with this epic guest blog from a first timer to the Gathering, and only a second timer to the […]

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 […]

Isn’t it Good Norwegian Wood?

Much to my surprise, the answer is…well, I’ll let you read and judge for yourself! My first surprise at this month’s 15th Harp Guitar Gathering, which my wife and I hosted at the NAMM Museum of Making Music, was our “hostess gift” – my just-finished new CD, included in each family’s registration packet. Physical copies […]

Harp Guitar Gathering 15 – Part 2

For those of you who couldn’t make it – and for those of you who were there but didn’t have time to properly absorb it – NAMM has posted an article on the exhibit that all Gathering goers were treated to, and that will run through the end of next April. The bulk of the […]

Harp Guitar Gathering 15 – Part 1

Our biggest attendance ever (I have counted those on stage yet…please do!). Chuck Thompson, C.H.G.P., has photos up now!  Sorry, no captions.  Narrative threads will hopefully appear on this blog, the Gathering section of the site, and Facebook – once my volunteer authors start submitting their entries.  Needless to say, I’m exhausted, but I did […]
