The 2012 Dates and Info for the Goderich Celtic College & Celtic Roots Festival are up early this year! Both Kim Robertson and Sharlene Wallace will be there, along with a ton of other amazing Celtic and folk musicians.
From Joanne Griffin, Secretary, Northern Lights Harp Fest:
“I know many of you have been curious about the V68 harp-for-two. Since this harp will be used for the open-mic-for-two at the Northern Lights Harp Fest, www.northernlightsharpfest.com, we decided to shoot a demo video to show folks that it actually plays and sounds like a harp (or harps). Acacia Lyra (Susan Sweeney Herman & Janine Dudding), who will be performing and giving a workshop at the Fest, kindly agreed to perform their rendition of Chanter Meets the Fairy King for the video.
The regular registration deadline for the NLHF is July 15th. If you haven’t already done so, sign up now for what promises to be an entertaining, informative and exciting harp experience!”
