Passionate people interested in the Celtic harp met from the 9th to the 13th of July, for the 31st edition of the Rencontres Internationales de Harpe Celtique of Dinan (Brittany). Amateur-harp maker and founder of the online magazine Harpes Mag’, Didier Saimpaul gave a workshop on harp technical drawings.
Last week-end, during the Nordic Harp Meeting in Järna, Andy Lowings gave a lecture on the Golden Lyre of Ur. This article tells this amazing story of the reconstruction of an instrument a few thousands years old. It was published last October in the online magazine Harpes Mag. We would like to thank Didier Saimpaul for letting us publish it here and Andy for generously sharing this adventure.
