Music with Pluck
Lynne Lewandowski wasn’t thinking of the therapeutic benefits of harp music when she first started building this medieval instrument — she just wanted to try making one. That was 32 years ago. Today, Lynne’s harps, crafted to order of cherrywood and gut strings, are renowned among early-music performers. The shapes are a synthesis of replica designs and modern interpretations of 6th- to 15th-century instruments. (Pictured here is a 12th-century-style “zoomorphic” harp, $3,500.) Made in Bellows Falls, Vermont. 802-463-4312; sover.net/~lynneski
