Mountain Laurel Autoharp Gathering

Cindy Harris – June Maugery – Ron Wall – Les Gustafson-Zook – Karen Mueller – Ivan Stiles

The Mountain Laurel Autoharp Gathering brings together autoharp enthusiasts from around the world for five days of workshops, concerts and ’round the clock music-making. Now in its thirtieth year, the Gathering features concerts and workshops from some of the folk world’s best musicians — and they come because no matter what else they’re famous for, they also just happen to play the autoharp!

Our featured performers for 2022:

Karen Mueller • Ron Wall
 Les Gustafson-Zook • Ivan Stiles • June Maugery
Cindy Harris (2019 MLAG Autoharp Champion)

We expect registration for the 2022 Gathering to begin on or about October 15th, 2021.
