For the past 11 years, harp guitarists have assembled in various locations across the country for the Harp Guitar Gathering. This year, the event heads to Coeur d’Alene for the first time. No, this isn’t some made-up instrument. The harp guitar is exactly what you’d expect — an acoustic guitar body with a harp arm and extra strings attached to the top. The combination, as you may suspect, creates an instrument that sounds like a beautiful combination of classical guitar and pedal harp. The weekend-long event offers two public concerts for people to discover firsthand what the instrument is all about: Saturday night at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 3 pm.
