For a Rare Discarded Harp, a Chance to Sing Again
New York Times, August 10 2009
Not exactly Blue Beauty, but close; this one was made in Dublin by John Eagan, an Irishman known as the father of the modern Irish harp.
It was found in a dumpster, and is now in the hands of Lorcan Otway, who plans to take it to London to have it restored by an expert.
Lorcan Otway has started a blog to follow the restoration of his John Eagan harp. The blog can be found here A John Egan Harp awakes from a long sleep.
Pictures of the John Eagan Harp can be found on Lorcan's flickr page Eagan harp and replica.
