Enter a new world

The Southeastern Harp Weekend...

at a wooded retreat center, in Asheville, North Carolina. 

One hundred acres of trees, big stone fireplaces in rustic buildings; it feels almost like the setting for the movie "Dirty Dancing."  Reasonable lodging and good food make this weekend like a big harpers' sleepover! 

You'll have harp tasting, one of the largest shopping opportunities in the country, and world-class presenters, workshops and concerts.  And tuition is only $268.

This harp festival attracts participants from 36 states and five countries, so you also have great camaraderie.  Thursday, Friday, Monday and Tuesday are ultra-fantastic optional add-ons to the weekend.

Welcome to an experience of friendly, warm folks, special discovery, love, and deep learning, the Southeastern Harp Weekend. 


“I tell everyone I know that this is the BEST conference. The presenters are helpful to all students, experienced or beginner. The participants are just the best; regardless of any problems, everyone is very supportive.” Jody Burch


“This is the very best harp conference I have ever attended. Lutheridge is a beautiful, quiet location. Make a vacation out of it. Tack on a few days in Asheville for great food and art.”  – Julie Garrigan


“The SEHW is an unparalleled opportunity to learn a great deal from talented, experienced harp professionals, with beautiful surroundings and, of course, many fantastic fellow harpers to get to know!”  – Hannah Roberts Brockow, Montreal, Canada.



“This is a weekend full of so many different kinds of presenters geared to every level. Some friends who are incredible pedal harpists come every year and get as much from it as those of us on lever harp.”

– Jean Moxley



“It's the best place to go if you're in the market for a new harp, need classes, or want to see concerts in the Southeast! I love it! I'm sooo glad I attended this year for the first time, and will most definitely be back! It gives me something to look forward to in the fall!”



“It is the opportunity of a lifetime to be taught by the best of the best! Every year the class choices address a variety of topics. There's instruction for every level of proficiency.” – Missy Saffelder



“My favorite thing was the quality of the performers and the hands-on participation at the clinics. Excellent presenters and the concerts were superb. They would be hard to top. This was my first and my head was spinning with new things to try.”

- Betty Natoli


“A ‘must have’ experience for all harpists! The event is well organized with great workshops and vendors. The concerts are awesome whether or not you are a harpist.  Lutheridge is perfect for this – large enough to accommodate but small enough to be intimate with fellow attendees.” – Mary Umbarger
