Dutch Open Harp Day blues workshops
Following on from my blues harp presentation at the World Harp Congress in July, I was invited to teach and perform at the Dutch Harp Society’s ‘Open Harp Day’ on the 30th of October. A truly delightful group of harpers joined me in a game of Barrelhouse, Shuffle, Yancey, Two Feel and other blues patterns, playing our way through the land of key signatures with a dice deciding our fate. I had a blast, and am even more motivated to finalise my books of blues harp originals, and especially my blues harp method soon!
