EarthMoments World String Series – Celtic Harp Bundle: The Celtic Harp, also known as folk harp, is an ancient instrument that dates back over 4000 years. While the Celtic Harp brings to mind the Celtic green isles that have influenced Celtic culture and music through the centuries, the harp developed in many variations in Africa, Europe, North and South America and Asia. Traditionally a popular instrument with medieval bards and troubadours, classical music composers through the ages have been inspired to create music that does true justice to the harp’s spectacular range of sound and tones.
