This year we are planning the first Harpa tour of Scotland! We will go through some of the most beautiful scenery to be seen anywhere and this trip will allow you to experience the majestic splendor of Scotland. We will leverage our Harp the Highlands and Islands tour and build in some fantastic concerts. We have a diverse group of musicians and I can hardly wait to hear us! We will start in Edinburgh and head out to Perth and from there we’ll begin nearly two weeks of exploring, enjoying, performing, jamming, and sharing! And all the while, you will enjoy the unspoiled beauty of well-known sites and off the beaten path sights you didn’t even know about.
