I revel in several hobbies away from work, with a major one being my harp.
After playing a number of instruments in my younger years, the harp called to me in 1995. I started with a lever harp and owned several before moving up to a Camac Clio pedal harp in 2000. However, I sold that harp in 2016 because I wasn’t playing it much.
I decided I love the harp too much to not have one in my life. In July 2022, I bought a Lyon & Healy Chicago Concertino pedal harp. In December 2023, my dream harp became mine — the Lyon & Healy Style 11 shown on this page! It has irises on the column and soundboard and is SOOO me!
Since I only play for my enjoyment, making a little video to post here most weeks gives me a goal for practice.
