Kicking off Summer - SoMD Harp Competition

Ok, technically it is still Spring until the end of June - but the best way to kick off your summer is with a good competition!

April 25, 2015 marks the 37th year for the oldest Celtic celebration in Maryland.  The Festival is 10 am to 6 pm rain or shine on the beautiful Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum.  The field overlooks the Patuxent River - a lovely location for a games!

We are fortunate to have Sharon Knowles as Judge this year! (www.fynesound.com).
Come out for an exciting competition. You will find the online registration (there will be no on-site registration) on http://www.cssm.org/events/festival/competitions/highland-harping/.  You find additional information on the site as well including links to Scottish Harp Society of America's competition rules and membership forms - your membership must be up to date to compete (memberships can be updated at the competition)
If competing isn’t your thing please come out to support our competitors. We also always need volunteers and audiences!  We have a workshop, Harp Circle, and a Come-and-Try planned as well.

The Festival is centrally located to the mid-Atlantic. Our Harp competition draws competitors from far away including North Carolina, Michigan, upstate New York and all around the Baltimore-Washington-Richmond areas.

This comp has lovely prizes and is always a fun and friendly competition – an excellent venue for new competitors and more experienced players as well. Hope we’ll see you there - in just under a month!
