Hi Sandra,

I was amazed at how much sound the harp was making that day and how beautiful the sound was.

The other part of that story was that John was so focused on getting the harp packed into his car safely that he drove off and left his own dulcimer behind but I dropped it in at his place on my way home.

One of John's other harps was recently sold to a member of the Roaring Forties who had never met John but had heard about him.
