Only a few years ago if you had asked your average teenager (who wasn't into classical music) about whether they knew of any harpists they wouldn't have been able to name one.
Ask a teenager now, and they will mention Tom Moth (under a new name!) the harpist in Florence and the Machine.
It's really great that the harp is becoming "hip" and is slipping into mainstream music and losing it's reputation of being "a girly classical instrument."
Just came across this remix done by Tom of an indie track by missdavinalee - with lots of lovely harp!
Lauren Scott is a harpist & composer and has been blogging on Harpyness for over 10 years.
If you enjoy reading Harpyness and you'd like to buy me a virtual coffee that would be very welcome. Cheers!
