ddw in windsor Songs and Tunes for Autoharp? (74* d) RE: Songs and Tunes for Autoharp? 06 May 99

Hi Harpgirl....

Sorry, couldn't locate the Bryan Bowers album. Dare I admit I suspect it went bye-bye in the last roundup of things that I'll never use again and got taken to a shop where I swap records sometimes. My recollection of the cover is that it was dark and reddish, but that may be wrong.

Anyway, while I was digging around for it, I came across something else I hadn't had out for a while -- a cassette called simply Autoharps, featuring one Ron Wall on harp and Mark Howard on guitar. Don't know if you've heard it, but he has a pretty light touch on the harp and does some nice tunes:
Majestic Waltz
Bonapart's Crossing The Alps
Cuckoo's Nest
Gift To Be Simple
Carolan's Ramble to Cashel
Swedish Fiddle Tune
South Wind
Rights of Man Hornpipe
Morning Bells
Gary Owen
Bells of St. Mary's
Not Far Away.

If any of this sounds interesting, let me know and I'll post what info I have about the album. I think it's about 10 years old and looks to be a shoe-string operation, so it might be hard to find.
