Subject: RE: Attn: Jews Harp Players
Leanora and Jon W I did'nt bother to elaborate on the political correctness but when you question the NAJHF folks, they are very careful to explain the origins and don't apologise for it's origins, it is called. "Jew's Harp" I must question, are you the same Leanora Too--- that attended Richland in 96'? from Florida? If so, you know as much about NAJHF as I do.Nice going, it never hurts to promote interest in such a bazaar instrument. A message for Sir... Dr. Fredrick Crane gave a seminar at the 97 fest that featured a Jew's harp concerto and backed by a full orchestra. Beethovin would be proud. I play striged instruments and voice songs and must admit that these harpers are skilled musicians and can make great sounds. I have three and keep plugging along and wonder if I will ever be accomplished at the Jew's harp. mostly folk.....
