    I want to introduce myself: I’m Hildegard, a nurse and harpist from the Netherlands. I have been drawn to classical and soothing music from an early age. As a young girl I played the classical guitar. Since 2001 I play the celtic harp based on self-taught and … I play the wire strung harp since 2012. This is a historical harp that has its origins in Scotland and Ireland. I also played the guitar, bowed psaltery, hurdy gurdy and medieval zither. I love to play in beautiful places, old buildings like castles or in the nature to make harpvideo’s on my YouTube channel. Recently I started with composing and arranging music for the celtic harp.
