Wow, what unfortunate weather Scotland’s been having this summer! Luckily I’ve been out and about abroad quite a bit so haven’t been too rained out! I had such a spectacular time at this summer’s Common Ground on the Hill in Maryland, USA. Besides my lovely harp students in three great classes, I was fortunate to participate in a gospel choir, a breakdancing class, some yoga, and met a lot of fabulous blues musicians! Blues harp, coming soon!!

Coming up soon is teaching at Germany’s Interkeltisches Folkfestival, and then a jam-packed weekend of concerts, workshops, and private lessons to celebrate the opening of a new harp store in Leerdam, in the Netherlands. Then a bit of a tromp around Mont Blanc, but that will be harp-free…

Later on in August, the North Atlantic Trio will be heading down to the UK’s biggest bluegrass gathering, the Didmartin Bluegrass Festival, to do a mainstage slot on the Saturday afternoon. Closer to home, we’ll be playing in Glasgow on Sept 15th at the Griffin (nr Charing Cross) in a double bill with the John Hinshelwood Band.

Happy Summer and hope to see you soon!
