Harpa's Third Concert

All the Harpaniks are having a great time!  We've been to St. Andrews and Glen Coe and Skye.  Loads of photos on our facebook page so give them a look!

We are also excited that our first concert at Dumfries House was super!  We had a great time meeting and playing with Meredith McCrindle, the Harpist in Residence.  There was a full house and the event raised money for The Prince's Trust.

We are preparing for our second concert as I write this and we are so looking forward to playing!  But quickly after that we will play our third concert at Gatehouse on Fleet - 21st May at The Mill on the Fleet in Gatehouse on Fleet. It promises to be a total revelry! We will be sharing the stage with the Dumfries and Galloway Branch of the Clarsach Society and we are so looking forward to meeting them and playing with our harp brethren in such an amazing facility. The Mill is a very interesting venue, a cotton spinning mill built in 1788. It had a water wheel used to drive the machinery. The mill changed over time as industry changed around it and in the 1980s the mill was restored by Dumfries and Galloway Council and later opened to the public. It has an exhibit, a bookshop (yea!) and we also hear they have a lovely café on site! Hope you can join us there – it’s in the middle of everything!
