UK Autoharps – President’s Preamble
Welcome to the website of the United Kingdom Autoharp Association.
The aim of UK Autoharps, which was founded in 2001 by a bunch of like-minded individuals who wanted to draw together their skills, interest and enthusiasm, is to promote the knowledge of and interest in the Autoharp, and to help and encourage the development and playing skills of its members throughout the UK.
We are a growing community of autoharpers from across the UK, ranging from beginners to world-class players (including previous Mountain Laurel and Winfield – World – Champions), who are interested in playing in many different styles, across a wide range of genres of music, and in getting together whenever we can to attend workshops in order to learn new and different techniques, meet other players, and enjoy playing together and with other instruments.
My goal as the current President of the Association is to promote the autoharp in areas of the UK where there is currently little or no presence, while at the same time maintaining and improving the provision of events for all our existing members, through consultation to establish what they want from their Association.
If you would like to play an autoharp, or already do, why not come and join us?
