Goderich Celtic College

Fantastic week in Goderich, Ontario August 8-11. Thank you to Kate and crew for inviting me to teach for the week, and to the wonderful students in my classes! And a special moment playing with Eve Goldberg (harp & ukulele!!).

Macpherson House Concert

Upon arriving at Macpherson House in Napanee, rain had begun which meant the “Music in the Garden” would become “Music in the Upstairs Parlour”! The historical house built in 1826 and has a wonderful double front door. However, the left door of the double was swollen shut from the humidity and my pedal harp was too wide to squeeze through the half door!!! Thank goodness I had also brought my beautiful 40 string Kortier lever harp… also very easy to get up the long flight of stairs! My concert was all Canadian music… mostly harp music by moi. Wonderful acoustics and a fun and attentive audience made the evening so special. Thank you Napanee!
