Music with my Mom

Recently I had the pleasure of playing my first public performance as a duo with my mother. She’s been playing the harp for about eight years (yes - harping is an illness and she caught it from me). She used to be shy about playing where anyone could hear her but now she gigs practically more than I do, either with members of her local harp circle or on her own as a harper/storyteller.

On Christmas Eve we provided the pre-service music at St. John’s Chapel in Monterey and it went so well that the bishop asked if we’d come back for Easter. I'm just happy to play music with my mom - how many people are lucky enough to do that?
