The Story Exchange
WE ARE ALL STORYTELLERS! Join me for the first Culture Days Harp & Story Exchange. Send a short original story, anytime after August 25th, using the "Vinyl Cafe" rules quoted below to firstname.lastname@example.org. Every week between September 25-October 25, on my website, I’ll share one of my favourite story submissions with a response on harp. "It has to be a true story, and it has to be a short story. After that, it can be anything at all. After that, it’s up to you." The response might be an original composition, or it might be a classic piece of harp repertoire. Either way, it will be chosen just for you! For all the details about this project, including references to Irish harpist Turlough O'Carolan, and Canadian radio legend Stuart McLean, click over to the blog post on my website, linked below.
This event is free.
