The harp is one of the most ancient instruments in the world. It was celebrated in the Bible, through the playing of King David, but was already widely depicted in prehistoric art. The harp is now particularly associated with Celtic music.
Patsy plays a 34-string Aziliz 'Harpe Celtique', made by Camac Harps, in Brittany, France. She also plays a 36-string Camac Electro-harp. She still has her much-loved Henry Briggs 30-string Clarsach, made in Glasgow in 1931.
