I live in the Lower Mainland of Beautiful British Columbia. I’ve been playing lever harp for around 10months now and I love it. This is my first insterment so I expected extreem difficulties, however, the encouragement and support I have recieved from the community has amazed me. I’ve been playing at church (candlelight service coming up on Christmas eve – scary) and have played for two weddings. I keep telling people that I have no business playing in public yet, but they insist and are thrilled with the results – mistakes and all. I don’t know if all insterments get this kind of enthusiasim and support from the community but it certainly goes a long way!! Harping makes for a wonderful way of life!!
