Stoney End Lorraine
29-string with full Loveland levers in cherry with custom artwork on the sounding board.
This was my mother’s first lever harp when she was learning to play and I bought it from her when she moved on to a larger harp. It is a great beginner harp with a lovely sound.
I haven’t had time to play in recent years and am about to move cross-country so I think it is time to find this lovely lady a new and loving home.
Comes with a padded carrying bag, tuning key and a removable matching cherry base. There are a couple of small cosmetic dings that do not affect the tone and are only visible close-up.  $1750

Harp Dolly donations needed:  The new 2015 public harp education program at North Shoreview Montessori School in San Mateo, CA, is in need of harp dollies. There are six harps that were donated/purchased by donation and the six students are taking to the harp very quickly. While the School District is doing what they can to accommodate this new program mid-year, they are in need of a harp dolly to get the floor harps to and from the Main office to the classroom (They are being stored in the Principal’s Office until a secure place is made in the school!). Erica Messer, Founder and Program Director, loaned her dolly for the time being, but if anyone can donate one, or donate funds to purchase one, it would be a great help.

Checks can be made out to: San Mateo Foster City Education Foundation with the subject line reading “HARP” and mailed to Erica Messer at PO BOX 2071 San Mateo, CA 94401. Donations are tax-deductible! Thank you for your support. Please contact Erica directly with any questions or if you have a dolly to donate! (415) 786-9143.
