Greetings all who happen here ~
I’m writing just as the 10th Annual Harp Guitar Gathering has ended here in Texas. As usual, our event brought together players, builders, authorities and enthusiasts of the harp guitar for a weekend of music and camaraderie.
I was very, very surprised by the first presentation. It turned out to be not what was on the schedule. As it happened, the first presentation was the unveiling of a cd of music, two years in the making, that I had no inkling of whatsoever. It’s called The Water Is Wide: A Tribute to ——————————- well, me…
The cd was put together by my friend and co-conspirator in the Gathering, Gregg Miner.
I haven’t yet had the chance to listen to the whole thing or read the accompanying booklet (much less absorb that this has actually happened). A bunch of very talented folks have created some beautiful music and written some very nice words about me.
Truly I am honored by this incredible expression of love. And just as truly, I am humbled by it.
In time I will be in touch with everyone who contributed in any way. For now, a simple but heartfelt thank to you all!
p.s. The cd is available at HarpGuitarMusic.com
