Question by Radiance: What are some bands that use organs or harps?
I’m looking for some different type of music to add to my collection so I want something new to listen to. I’ve always been a fan of the organ and harp, but I don’t have any bands that use those instruments so it would be nice to have some music of that category in my library. Also if you know any bands that use the traditional Japanese instrument called the “Koto” that would be good too.

Best answer:

Answer by Jonathan
I don’t know of any bands who used those instruments regularly, but here’s a few songs featuring those instruments:

organ:
“A Whiter Shade of Pale” – Procol Harum
“I’m OK” – Styx

harp:
“She’s Leaving Home” – Beatles

    Logic / Reason / Evidence Says:

    A lot of Progressive Rock bands used organs before Synths became polyphonic (multi-note) try any early 70′s, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Genesis, Pink Floyd & King Crimson also the Doors who weren’t progressive really. Did you mean electric or acoustic organs? Dead Can Dance do a great track called Severance with what sounds like a church organ on it.

    I can’t think of anyone who used a real harp but Kraftwerk use what sounds like a harp arpeggio sample on the track ‘Tour De France’.

    For a koto check out David Bowie with Brian Eno on the Heroes album. There’s a track called ‘Moss Garden’ with koto on it.

    Oh – and a track by Laurie Anderson called ‘Kokoku’ uses koto too.

    Schrödinger’s Strings use harps and play rock, metal, classical and pop music:
