We will have a blind "tasting" of several models of small harps complete with tally slips to write your impressions of each. If you're in the market for a small harp this would be a great way to hear the differences between them, and even if you're not in the market it's great fun! After the tasting we'll work up a new tune set that we'll be playing at Pleasanton this year, plus our usual works in progress!
