We at BEDSIDE HARP® salute you who feel the call to work in the field of harp therapy. To honor and support you and and the work you are doing, we are delighted to offer a professional discount on the Marie Therapy harp to anyone currently registered in or who is a graduate of any of the harp therapy, therapeutic musician or therapeutic harp certification programs.
In the spirit of promoting the continued well being of those who play small harps with straps, we urge you to use a surcingle when walking with your instrument and to use either a lap bar or our new Le Stik when practicing. See our dramatic photographs of how differently your harp will rest on your body when you use these essential tools!

Once again, Edie came to Dwight Blevins with a dream: Could he produce a beautiful resonating therapy harp that went lower than the C below Middle C and still be light? Dwight went back to his drawing board and created the amazing 27 string Marie Great Almond and Great Blue. As far as we know, this is the world’s first hybrid therapy harp—the column and harmonic curve are made of carbon fiber and the soundbox is made of spruce. These fabulous instruments weigh in at 6 pounds! Edie plays the Great Blue wherever she goes these days and believes that those lower tones truly make a real difference at the bedside. The range of the Marie Great Almond and Great Blue is from F two below Middle C to D 3 above Middle C. As all of our harps, it comes as a package with a full set of Truitt levers, a quality strap and removable pad, a quality weather-resistant case, and of course, a tuning key. Optional is an installed input jack. Please call our offices at 215-752-7599 for the prices on this model, the FX27.
After playing over 2,500 hours of hospital rounds, Edie longed for a lighter weight harp having the same rich, round sound as her Marie 24. As always, Dwight Blevins granted her wish first, with his creation of the 23 Marie Petite, smaller and shorter than her sister harp, the Marie 24. But Dwight didn’t quit there—several months later he created the 23 string Marie XP (ranging from C below Middle C to D 3 above), still producing those soothing, mellow tones—that highly responsive, sonorous bass wonderfully balanced by the higher sweet tones. The XP weighs in at an unbelievable 5 pounds and is a perfect fit for everyone, most especially harp therapists under 5’4”. Like all of our harps, the Marie XP is sold as a package which includes a full set of Truitt levers, a high grade weather-resistant padded case, a quality strap with a removable pad and a tuning key.
Everything you’ll ever want in a small harp:
Now you can deliver those wonderful low tones and still enjoy the portability of a therapy harp. The new Marie 27 is a harp every professional therapeutic harpist craves. Range is from G two below Middle C up to E three above Middle C, so your patients can relax all the more into those rich low tones.
After playing over 2,000 hours of hospital rounds, Edie longed for a lighter weight harp having the same rich, round sound as her Marie 24. As always, Dwight Blevins granted her wish with his creation of the 23 Marie Petite. And oh, what a harp this is! Weighing approximately 6.5 pounds, the Marie Petite is considerably smaller and shorter than her sister harp, the Marie 24, so it is a perfect fit for everyone, most especially harp therapists under 5”4’. With folk harp string spacing, the sound of a Marie Petite is just amazing — a highly responsive, sonorous bass wonderfully balanced by high sweet tones. Sold as a package which includes a full set of Truitt levers, a high grade weather-resistant padded case, a quality strap with a removable pad and a tuning key. As with all of the Marie Therapy Harps, options such as exotic woods and a spruce soundboard are extra.
