It’s not just the national symbol of Ireland. The harp has existed in some form for over 5,000 years, and it’s still seen today in the concert hall. It’s easy to see why it’s on Team Strings – they can have up to 47 strings! Harp technique is unlike any other instrument in the concert hall, and it’s really something to watch.
