“In Good Hands”, about The Clarsach Society and the Renaissance of the Scottish Harp, was written and compiled by Stuart Eydmann and is illustrated throughout by a unique selection of contemporary photographs. The book will be of interest to all enthusiasts of the clarsach, and of Scottish music in general.

A note from Stuart Eydmann about the book…

“As a scholar of Scottish music with an interest in the history, use and revival of musical instruments in the modern era, I was delighted and privileged to be given the opportunity to pursue this project to map and share the intriguing story of those dedicated to its promotion of the clarsach and responsible for leading its renaissance. It is hoped that this first exploration of the harp in Scotland in the modern era will prove of value to students, learners and enthusiasts and serve as a base for further research by others. I am sure readers will share my conclusion that the revival of the clarsach is an achievement for which The Clarsach Society and its membership should be very proud.”
