The Somerset Folk Harp Festival is a 4-day conference celebrating the diversity of music, talent and experience of the folk harp world. Whether you want to focus on one style or type of music, solidify some specific skills, or try out something new, the breadth of this year’s workshop offerings is sure to expand your musical horizon. Our Exhibit Hall is the best harp and music shopping under one roof you'll find anywhere on the East Coast. Daily concerts will inspire you. Come for the whole festival or just one day--plenty of registration options.

What People Are Saying About 2014

"Dear Kathy, I keep thinking that I have learned so much at Somerset already that it would not matter if I skip a year or two. That never happens. You have put together a great line-up (as usual). You have outdone yourself!" --Marie

"Now that I'm retired and have time for all the things I had to put on can be sure I won't be missing the historical harp offerings." --Killian
