    Hi Judiann and everyone, I’m so excited to find this platform and meet other harpers and harpists. What a great way for us to get to know each other.

    1. What made you decide to start playing the harp?

    Because it looks and sounds so beautiful, the celtic connection (my family are Cornish) and probably (subconsciously) the association with angels – who wouldn’t want to play heavenly music?!

    2. What is your favorite style or genre of harp music?

    I love it when the harp plays music outside of its traditional pigeon hole. Personally I love folk music though.

    3. What are your harp-related goals for 2021?

    I’d love to feel comfortable playing in public and adding my voice too.

    4. What do you enjoy most about playing the harp?

    It’s sound and vibration as it rests against my shoulder. I love it’s shape, its simple construction and its sacredness.
