Hello, Friends, come to a concert! I’m delighted to play on several songs in this year’s Harpers Hall Christmas Concert. I was one of the founders of this folk harp group many years back. As Harpers Hall is based in the San Francisco, CA’s South Bay area and I live in a different state, I don’t often get to play with Harpers Hall. Thanks to COVID I’ve been able to be a more active member. Please enjoy the music!
Thank you to Harpers Hall director Verlene Schermer for making this concert happen, and doing all the organization and tech to bring it together.
Last year I put together an audio to celebrate the Ancestor time of year (late autumn, aka now). “Follow the Deer” honors the depth and breadth of our heritage, and this year I added some video. As beings of the earth, even the stones, plants, animals, and bio-regions in which we live are family. Illustrations, photos, narrative, and harp music are by me. This video is only two minutes long.
