Harp Lesson Anyone??

I'm in the process of writing the 2022 Good Craic Guide to the Mournes (and beyond!!). I love it. There is so much to do and see in this area! I thought I'd pause for a moment and share with you one of my very favourite suggestions of all.

My sister has always wanted to play the harp but they are big and expensive and not that common in Australia. So when she visited I asked Brona McVittie, a local harp player, if she could do a private lesson. Best Birthday pressie I ever bought!! My sister loved it! She plays piano so was able to translate some of those skills onto the harp.

Another visit I invited another local harp player Lorraine Matthews to come and do a house concert for my whole family. She came to the house we had rented and did a beautiful job. She even let people have a little turn on the harp if they wanted to. Such a memorable day!

I've spoken to Brona and she would be happy to offer the same to you and your family. A beginners harp lesson starts from £20 and can be at her place in Rostrevor or she can come to you. If you are interested in a concert contact her for more information.

Email Ph: 077 919 76 234.

Just one of the wonderful suggestions in the soon to be published Good Craic Guide 2022. Will be available free from Good Craic in both Rostrevor and Silent Valley.
