The 15th Anniversary Harp Guitar Gathering: A First Timer’s Experience

As much as I’d love to do my weekly photo blog series to capture the epic 15th Anniversary Harp Guitar Gathering Jaci and I hosted this year, I’m leaving that for others for now. We start with this epic guest blog from a first timer to the Gathering, and only a second timer to the […]

Harp Guitars in the News

Apologies to those following my Summer Vacation series (SO much more cool stuff to come)… I have to take a hiatus to concentrate on our upcoming public harp guitar exhibition in Carlsbad.  This will be major. The Museum of Making Music’s “Notes” newsletter (at right) arrived in the mail the other day and I realized […]

Scotland Part 3: Friday and Saturday Adventures

My narrative now picks up Friday morning (June 2, 2017), after a decent night’s sleep with dreams of huge tastenguitarren-playing owls, definitely a new combination for my overly-susceptible subconscious.  As AMIS went straight into their full day of research papers at Reid Hall, Jaci and I went off for more play time.  As our Edinburgh […]

Scotland Part 2: Everything from Owls to Keyed Guitars

Thursday, June 1, 2017: After the AMIS opening reception at Edinburgh’s St. Cecilia’s Hall (new home of the Musical Instrument museum) then our first pub and now tremendously jet-lagged we slept like the dead.  Assuming the dead similarly jolt awake at all hours during their bedtime and have really weird dreams.  So no, 12 fitful […]

Scotland Part 1: Arrival in Edinburgh

After my quick introduction to this year’s Summer Adventure Double Header, we begin with a 12-hour transatlantic flight from Los Angeles to Amsterdam (nice airport!), then a quick hop to Edinburgh.  My wife Jaci and I were headed there for a joint meeting of the European Galpin Society and the American Musical Instrument Society. For […]

Summer Adventure Double Header

Once again, my wife Jaci and I managed to find first one excuse, then another, to get back to Europe this year!  It was two packed weeks of fun and work (I’m leaving the “air quotes” off the latter in case the IRS is reading) – with friends and colleagues from around the world.  As […]
