Subject: RE: Attn: Jews Harp Players
The website Wolfgang gave says "juice harps" is fairly recent, much more common among the younger generation (as being more PC) and an apt name considering the amount of slobber produced by amateur players. The site is well worth a visit and has some sources on recordings as well as festivals for those interested. Also names from around the world. Did you know the Italian name, "Scacciapensieri", means "Thought (or worry) chaser"?
