The North American Jaw Harpists are proud to host the 22nd North American Jew's Harp Festival! All are welcome to join the FREE festivities! We will have a "meet and greet" at the Axe and Fiddle (next door to the Armory) on Thursday the 10th of August, followed by workshops and concert performances on the 11th and 12th! We are currently seeking jaw harp performers and workshop instructors. Please feel free to contact any of us with inquiries :)
Please visit the Jews' Harp Guild Facebook group or the North American Jaw Harpist Group ( https://www.facebook.com/najawharpists/ ) for more information.


We have also moved the JHG website to back to a Windows server and are in a reconstruction process. Some features may not be working. Thank you for your patience!

WELCOME TO THE
JEW'S HARP GUILD

We are a organization dedicated to preserving the
history and art of this, and other, ancient, unique,
or culturally significant acoustic instruments.

We hope this website will educate
and entertain you. 

The Jew's Harp is a small musical instrument
which is held against the teeth or lips, and plucked with the fingers. Its appearance in many cultures of the world, and ancient roots, attest to the magical essence of this simple instrument.
