Harpo Marx

The Marx Brothers

The second-oldest of the legendary Marx Brothers, Harpo Marx was a silent comedian who never uttered a word during performances. To communicate with his fellow actors Harpo simply blew a horn or whistled. He also played harp solos in most of his films. He couldn’t read music, but loved playing the harp and practiced for two or three hours every day. Despite his lack of formal training, Harpo Harx became one of most influential and famous harp players who ever lived.

Harpo Marx
I was the same kind of father as I was a harpist–I played by ear.

Harp Facts

Harp Facts

The harp is a stringed musical instrument with a number of individual strings running at an angle to a soundboard. The strings are plucked with the fingers. Harps are generally triangular in shape, and are usually composed of wood. Modern harps have nylon or metal strings.

Harps vary greatly in terms of size. Smaller harps can be played in the lap. Larger, much heavier harps are designed to rest on the floor.

Harps are found all over the world–in Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America. They’re closely related to lyres, which have been popular in nearly all cultures.

Harps have been used as a political symbol of Ireland for centuries. Their likenesses have appeared on Irish coinage since the Middle Ages, including current Irish imprints of Euro coins.
