Andrew Bird

Well... Here's a short video of me playing the intro to Andrew Bird's "Sovay". This is the first song I picked out by ear on my first day with the Dusty Strings harp I rented last January. I still play it all the time as a warm up. This video is actually from a while ago... I've since cut all my hair off. I'm still working on the Fauré Pavane and Pavane Pour Une Infante Défunte, but I'm taking a couple of months off from harp lessons. Work has been so busy and we've been traveling a lot. I'm starting to miss my routine. And I also miss strings not breaking! Curse you, summer!!

Misty Mountain Harp

Spent a long weekend in the mountains of Western North Carolina with some great old friends who live in DC. Matthew bought himself a new banjo and I took some time to bond with my beloved Hummingbird. I'm bummed I couldn't bring my harp. Loving such a giant, cumbersome instrument can be heartbreaking when you drive a 4 door sedan.
