UK Autoharp Day, 7 July

The second UK Autoharp Day in 2007 runs from 11.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. on Saturday 7 July at Ashley Green Community Hall, Chesham Road, Ashley Green, Bucks HP5 3PL, England.

Mike Fenton, a 1997 inductee into the Autoharp Hall of Fame, is the main tutor for experienced players, and Heather Farrell-Roberts for beginners. Chris Younger will give expert help on autoharp maintenance; CDs, instruments, and other items will be on sale; and luthier Alec Anness will bring his new harp for people to try out. The programme includes a jam session, open stage, and concert, and a bring-and-share supper.

Complete beginners, non-members, and other instrument players are welcome as well as experienced players, and loaner autoharps will be available. Further details are on the website.
