The unusual talent you find in small town America never fails to amaze me. Here we are in the rural panhandle of Idaho, in a town of 1000, and we're a hotbed of harpists.
This afternoon our daughters had a music recital. Instruments included harp, piano, violin, voice, and guitar. The harps, of course, were the most impressive from sheer quantity if nothing else. How many people have ever heard a dozen harps at once, ranging from lap harps to concert-sized pedal harps?
This is all due to the indomitable efforts of a local and elderly lady who simply loves music and wants nothing more than to share her joy in the harp with everyone she can rope in (my husband included). No one is professional but they're all having fun.
(This was the rehearsal so no one is in the audience seats yet.)
