    Hi Dowrgi, I am having a swell Summer Solstice, and have been playing my harp, which I do have amplified, but it sounds really good, I have an LR Baggs Classical Guitar pickup in the harp on the soundboard, that has a contact mic and a real mic and it sounds wonderful, and I have a Mesa Boggie Rosette acoustic amp with the 10 inch speaker that is made for acoustic instruments, so the whole rig sounds like heaven. I have been working on the song Saddle the Pony, which I know the goddess Rhiannon Loves, and I am playing the Fleetwood Mac song Rhiannon on the harp and it sound great on the harp. Also, I wanted to thank you for your post on the books, about the Celtic stories. And all of your insight on that. And I knew I was going to get a reply on this one from you. So let me see what wise words you said. Thank you for that information, and it looks like I will have to study up on some more history on this. Please post again if you can think of anything else that could apply to this idea. I am just starting to work on it so I guess I will need to put a lot of research into the topic. But it should be fun. Oh, I am also working up the story of Taliesin for bard work, so I can tell the story and at the same time play my harp in the background. The thing about harps is it is very hard to hit a bad note on them and even sound better when you know how to play one. I hope you can get a harp, I think you would really like it, and it is a druid instrument that even academics and really intelligent and studious people like you like. I know you like history and language, and I just think that a lot of people who like those subjects would like harp music. I like the pilgrim ashdown model, but you might be able to find one used in a junk shop, and there are even really old ones that can be found in second hand shops. Also, try to get gut strings if you are interested. It is nice to be able to tell a bardic tale and back it up with the harp. Thanks again for all your good information, it always helps. I wish you a wonderful Summer Solstice. BlueFalcon
