Who

Who organises all this?

Since the Nordic Harp Meeting circulates between the Nordic countries, the local crew has a different composition every year.

In 2019 (Norway), the NHM will be organised again by Stein Villa, Marit Steinsrud and Gjøvik spelmannslag.
In 2018 (Sweden), the NHM was organised by Erik Ask-Upmark.
In 2017 (Estonia), the NHM was organised by Triin Hio.
In 2016 (Denmark), Maria Ojantakanen was the chief organiser.
In 2015 (Finland), the NHM was organised by Yrjänä Ermala, Helka Ermala and Antti Saarinen.
See the history section for earlier editions…

Some constant figures have been involved almost every year since the NHM has started in 2008:

  • Floris van der Meijs: chief photographer and web provider
  • Wendy van der Meijs: reception of participants, and cure of nervous breakdowns
  • Josef hörpuleikari: The father of the project. Some call him the spider in the net, invisibly plucking most strings, although this may be exaggerated.
