Larry of Grants Pass writes: “Hello! My name is Larry Kiser, and I am seeking information about any harp makers who might be willing to donate for a disabled veteran with a lifelong dream of being a Bard. (I constructed a 22-string Clarsach style harp several years ago, however the lack of woodworking experience resulted in a harp without any tuning pegs.) I have met a lady willing to teach me here in Grants Pass where I live and wondered if you might know of anyone interested in helping me find a more suitable instrument?

Susan Toman (Canada) writes to say of her new book of harp arrangements, “Dance upon the Strings is a unique concept, giving the option for just RH, 2 Hands, or 2 Harp parts (one solo, one accompaniment). Each tune is first presented very simply, followed by a 2nd time through with easy Irish ornamentation. I also provide a recording of both the solo and accompaniment parts, so people can play along with the recording (acting as a pseudo duet partner.) I feel this is particularly timely, given the isolation of Covid 19 this year. It can also be a resource for duet partners or harp circles. You can find it listed on my website here: http://www.susantoman.com/store/c1/Featured_Products.html.”  (new 6/20)

Click this link http://harpimages.com/News.html and then click on the highlighted word “here” in the first paragraph for an excerpt of the sheet music. The cost is $12 plus shipping for a hard copy, or $12 for a digital copy (.pdf). Payment options are personal check from a US bank or PayPal (worldwide, excluding Australia).

Sellers, Beware of  On-line Scammers!
Latest Harp Scam Attempts by “Sterling Mackinnon”.

You may be contacted by such scammers… unfortunately, this happens with almost any expensive item advertised on-line. These scams have become more sophisticated, and some sound authentic (at first).  Be suspicious of  ANY offer that calls your harp an “item”, involves a “shipper” or “agent”, pressures you to quickly accept a money order or cashier’s check, or asks you to return “change” from a large overpayment. The money order or check turns out to be bogus, and you lose the “change” and perhaps your harp as well!
