The Custom Harp builder, Glenn J. Hill of Mountain Glen Harps 2014-10-22 08:19:00

Welcome Everyone to my new web page, written in Word Press code. 

I just realized that I have been building Harps, And websites for a looong time !  My first web site was in 1993, written with AOL Press,.. 21 years ago ! But I started building harps back in 1978, which is 36 years ago !:-)

So, just click on this link to get to my new site. It is still under construction on some of the 39 pages, with many more images and videos to be added.

Enjoy, and let me know what you think !

I will be at the Southeastern Harp Weekend, on Oct  23rd through the 27th in Ashville North Carolina, showing a brand new custom carved Myrtle wood 36 string nylon harp.

This weekend !! :-)

 This harp is carved with angels in flight, a crescent moon with a semiprecious stone set inside it, crystals, gold leaf, painted and carved feathers and also it sounds really, really GOOD ! :-)  Come and see me and my lovely wife Laurie, of Markwood Heavenly Strings & Cases, at booth ‘B’ ! :-)

Here are some shots of this harp under construction .

SCA Participant: Artivism and the “Aha” Moment

Think back to the exact moment when you decided to become an activist.   Go ahead. We’ll wait. Was it…   Because someone sent you a petition? Or because a friend forwarded you an advocacy alert? Or, I know: was it because you read a really great white paper?   Chances are, none of these inspired you […]

Art vs. technology

This past summer I was driving from Rochester to Chautauqua, to spend a few days helping Peter Georgescu put together a new book proposal, which turned out to be productive (and gave me a chance to work with Andrew Terrell, a very young former White House staffer who seems to know everything that’s going to […]
