Canning Kitchen Party

 This weekend Canning Kitchen Party presented a beautiful little outdoor concert at Ross Creek Centre for the Arts. I really enjoyed the chance to play some tunes with Tatsu in the first half, and to hear an amazing collection of harp solos by Màiri Chaimbeul in the second. We were able to have a bit of a socially distanced session afterwards which was lovely. Thanks to Orla for the photos, and to Kim for organizing this!

Conservatory Harp Studio

Today marks the first day of the Conservatory teaching term! I'm very happy to be back in the building and to be part of the mini harp department with my wonderful fellow teacher Alys Howe. I'm offering both private lessons in person (with covid-19 precautions) and online lessons. There are still some spots left for harp students this fall - click here for more info!
