Image Gallery: Two Like Harps

Engraving of Denis O'Hampsey and his harp (left) and Ann with her copy of the Downhill harp at Downhill.(right) Ann plays in the traditional manner on the left shoulder, with her left hand playing in the treble and right hand in the bass. She tunes her harp in the traditional manner also, diatonically except for two no comhluighe strings near the middle of the gamut, which are tuned first, to the same pitch, and form the foundation for tuning the rest of the harp.
