    Hi, Im Sandy from the northeast UK. Ive played the banjo, dulcimer and fiddle for years ( I still cant read music ). Five years ago I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and for a while I couldnt lift anything up. I bought a small harp because I didnt have to lift my arms up very far to play it. That was two years ago when I was 70. Im now able to play my banjo and fiddle again but have become quite obsessed with the harp. Im still having a lot of trouble getting my left hand to play the right strings but Ill get there. This site is amazing. I`m so glad to be here.
