a family of harpers

the 2 youngest sons, and the granddaughter came for last weekend. the harp was a huge hit, with the older fellow in particular. after i'd shown them how to play it, he couldn't seem to walk past it without stopping to try something out. by the end of the weekend he'd mastered several of the tunes he plays on his fiddle. not the sort of thing i thought would appeal to teenage boys. and he was dropping rather strong hints about how much he REALLY liked it.

i think i have a few tunes ready to try with the Irish band next time we practice.
