Harp Workshop, July 14

Rocking the Background! for harpists of all ages. 

Come join us for an afternoon harp workshop with Seumas Gagne, a Seattle based harper in the Scottish music tradition. 

For Intermediate Harp Players : Guitar players can create tremendous energy and flow with the rhythms they strum when they accompany singers and tune players. We can do the same thing with our harps, and in this workshop Seumas will show you how without ever looking at a note of written music.

This event is part of the Minnesota Scottish Harp Weekend
