Hi, there! I'm Sharon Powers, and I am a therapeutic harpist in Birmingham, AL. My certification is through the Heart of God Harpers program under the teaching and guidance of accomplished harper Joanna Mell. I currently play "Sleekstone", a 29-string Smartwood harp from Music Makers whose sound, though softer than other harps, is just lovely, and works very well in small venues or private residences. I can also often be found with "Euodia" (The Traveler), my lightweight, 24-string Hayden Harp, a perfect companion when flying to see family in California!
Since December 2016, I have begun work as the on-call harpist for Lakeside Hospice in Pell City, AL. In January 2017, I began playing for residents at Kirkwood By the River in Irondale, AL, every first Monday. I love getting to entertain, soothe, and connect with these dear souls. Reach out to me via the Contact page to have me play for residents at your facility!
Sharon has also been teaching the folk harp privately since February 2016 and has taught several students, encompassing a variety of ages and skill levels. Contact her today to sign up for lessons!
Below is a little clip from December 2016, when Sharon took her 24-string Hayden Harp to California. You can also click on the YouTube link at the top of this page to go to her video channel, and do subscribe to see when new videos are posted!
