Elaine Olson Maui harpist

Elaine with harp Aloha from Maui! Welcome to my web page. Here you will find my song list, and some samples of my harp music.

Harp music is wonderful for weddings or any special occasion.

I'm available as a solo harpist, or as a member of a duo or ensemble. Whether you are having a small informal wedding on the beach, or a large elegant party in a hall, you'll find that live music will be a beautiful and memorable part of your event.

My goal is to provide beautiful music and professional service. I'll work with you to create a customized musical experience that you'll love. I love all kinds of music, and enjoy requests!

Please contact me if you have any questions, and for availability and rates.

My 2014 CD Green Islands is available as a CD, MP3, also on iTunes

"The clarity, sensitivity, integrity, speed on the fast tracks, and pure interpretation of these traditional pieces make this recording stand up there with the best! Additional instruments truly blend, enhance and support the harp tracks, rather than covering or distracting. The wire harp sounds wonderful and mystical!"
Maria Valentine
Tampa, Florida professional harpist and teacher

About me

I've been living on Maui since 1980. I've been playing the harp since 1992, when I built my first small harp from a kit. My main harp these days is a walnut Triplett Eclipse, a "lever" harp with 38 strings. I also play the Celtic wire strung harp with its bell-like sound. I have a Triplett 30-string wire harp. I also have a smaller, more portable Dusty Strings harp which can be used for hospital visits, etc.

For large or noisy locations, I can provide battery-powered amplification for any of my harps, at no additional cost.

I also play several other instruments, such as concertina, banjo, and ukulele.

I currently play with the groups Tropical Harps and Upcountry Celtic..
