Heartland Harps founder and owner, Dave Woodworth, began building wood harps in 1984, and for the next 25 years, Heartland built more than 1,700 wood harps in a variety of models. In 2001, Dave married professional harpist, Pamela Bruner. Pamela did the hand-painted artwork on the wood harps and, with her help, the design and sound of the harps continued to evolve through the years, including into new materials like carbon fiber.
In 2009, Heartland fused the art of harp-building with cutting edge technology and introduced their first harp model fabricated from carbon fiber—creating a harp that is lightweight, impermeable to the elements, and virtually indestructible. To date they have built nearly 1,000 carbon fiber harps for delighted customers all over the world.
