Whilst working through the journals of the J. G. Morley harp company, the following entry (20 July 1892) grabbed my attention. It refers to a Grecian harp (no. 11) by Head of Dublin. I've not encountered this maker before. That the harp is described as 'Grecian' suggests that it was made before c1850, and it is plausible that Head had some connection with Egan. Can anyone shed any light on this maker?
In around 6 weeks theearlypedalharp.net will be a year old. Over the past year 60 people have signed up as members, and we've had excellent contributions to our blog and forum pages. What next? The website will continue its focus on the early pedal harp - that is non-negotiable - but we're open to suggestions about how we go forward. What would support the community, your research and practice best? Please share your ideas below. Mike
