Harping on... with a real harp!

The lady who runs the afternoon tea social at my building has a husband who is an instrument maker. He just recently finished making a thirty-six-string Celtic lever harp, and it's absolutely gorgeous! (I wish I had a picture to show you, but I didn't have my phone with me at the time.) Anyway, they both knew I used to play harp years ago, and they wanted me to see this one, so they brought it with them today. this is me playing... after not having touched a harp in eleven or so years. I was never a great harpist to begin with, and I was rather fumble-fingered today from being so out of practice, but I sure enjoyed playing! I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity. #Celtic #folk #harps #me #noodling
