All up to date at the Autoharps web site...

And everything is in place for the Gargrave Autoharp Festival 2014.


The Gargrave Autoharp Festival is now very visible on the web - and I don't think there is much more I can usefully do there... 


Our bid for Arts Council funding was successful - look out for our revised poster, with the Arts Council logo.


With the help of other sponsors, including a boat club on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, I have been able to bring over Patrick Couton, the French jazz autoharper.  It is a quite different style, extraordinary technique. 

(Amongst Patrick Couton's other jobs, he translates Terry Pratchett into French...)


I have asked Patrick Couton to launch the Festival by playing in the Masons Arms, Gargrave, on the evening of Friday June 27.


We have the day of classes and demonstrations on Saturday June 28 - any musician who wants to can sit in on these classes.  Only people actually holding an autoharp will have to pay.


Then we have the Grand Concert on Saturday evening, starring Mike Fenton, England's autoharp guru, Patrick Couton and Heather Farrell-Roberts. 


And everything is now in place for the Autoharp Service in St. Andrew's, Gargraves lovely church, on the morning of Sunday June 29 , 2014.

 Looking forward to Gargrave but still can't find booking forms for the event, any news on when they'll be available ?    :)
