Jun 5, 6 All Areas. Joanna Mell's annual Random Acts of Harping days will take place on June 5 and 6 this year. Joanna says "grab your harp and go out into a public venue and make someone's day! Most people have never seen or heard a harp up close and personal before. Snap a pic and send it to me (email@example.com) along with a short paragraph about your adventures. Happy harping!"
