Louise Trotter was a well-loved U.S. harpist, composer, and arranger. Beginning in early childhood she had musical training in both piano and harp. She studied harp at Texas Women's University and also with Mildred Dilling. Louise was awarded two Lifetime Achievement Awards: one by the International Society of Folk Harpers and Craftsmen in 2003, and a second by the Somerset Folk Harp Festival in 2014. She played a varied repertoire, from classical to Broadway, swing, Latin, rag, jazz, or folk, and was one of the few harpists who specialized in country music. Louise passed away in 2019 at the age of 96.
In April of 2015, Louise wrote an article for Sylvia's monthly e-newsletter, telling about her harp journey. You can read the article here.
