Harps Rare?

I'll admit harps are less common than guitars or what have you but they have enjoyed a great resurgence over the last couple of years, particularly in the USA, where it seems you can't move for folk/lever harps half the time, harpists are in great demand for society weddings and harp makers are producing a whole host of wonderful instruments from 22 string lap harps to the full size kind. A web search on Sylvia Woods takes you to one of the main shops in California full of harps and harp music, the harplist at Yahoo Groups has over a thousand members...!

Gnomon - time to move on

They're certainly not common in Europe. Even in Ireland, where they were once the mainstay of traditional music, they appear to be dying out.
