Jan 13 Online. Hello 2021! As the new year begins, the Eastside Harp Circle will continue to meet on Zoom on the 2nd Wednesday of every month from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, Pacific Time. We are a group that has grown during the pandemic to include harpers from several states outside Washington and a few additional countries. Our meetings include playing - and sometimes singing - folk music, as well as music of other genres, a variety of arranged music, and original music. Sometimes instruments other than harps are added in, and an occasional story or poem is shared. We welcome works-in-progress of all types and always include some time to chat at the beginning and at intermission. Our January meeting will be on Wednesday, January 13th, again from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. If you are joining us for the first time, contact Anna Jenkins by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link and PDFs of the group tunes to be played. Onward with music!
