      | Wisconsin Harp Discography |

      This page lists links for current and former Wisconsin resident musicians that play the Pedal, Folk or Celtic Harp, as well as Wisconsin-based groups with a regular Harp playing member.

      Please write if you know about any Wisconsin Harp player or a Wisconsin-based group that includes a regular Harp player, that is not listed, or if you have additional information about, or links for, a listed artist/group.
      For non-Wisconsin Harp players and groups, see the Harpers/Harpists page.
      Note: to avoid confusion with the stringed harp, the Blues harmonica is never referred to as a "harp" anywhere at the site.
