Summer's Featured Harp Music:

The season's featured harp music is an arrangement of the traditional Welsh tune Hobed O Hilion by North Seattle pianist and harper, Janet Anderson. Janet says: "My formal training is in piano, voice and composition. I make my living as a piano teacher, as well as serving as music director at Wedgwood Presbyterian Church in Seattle. I started playing the harp in October of 2020, after many years of looking longingly at the harps in the Dusty Strings showroom. Everything I know about harp technique I learned from YouTube, especially Josh Layne’s excellent Harp Tuesday videos. This lovely tune comes from a Welsh website, http://www.alawoncymru.com/, recommended by another YouTube teacher, Tiffany Schaefer. If you’re at all interested in Welsh folk music I highly recommend Alowon Cymru’s website as a rich resource of tunes. My mother is of Welsh ancestry, but the family legend is that my great-grandfather was kicked out of the country because he couldn’t sing. Though Mom always said my musical ability must come from somewhere else, I am very much interested in exploring my Welsh musical heritage, so I’m happy to share this tune with other harpers."

So now, on to the music...
