Ellie, William’s service dog-in-training, has her own perspective on the going’s-on at Rees Harps. As the official Rees Harps Enthusiasm Coordinator, you can count on Ellie to be in the middle of everything with something funny to say. Unfortunately, Mew, one of the Rees Harps cats, has Ellie’s blog password so occasionally, Mew provides what she believes to be the necessary counterweight.

Super cool harp!

Last month, someone brought a really cool harp into the shop to get some maintenance done. They said William built it in the 90s, but I’ve never seen anything like it. It kind of looks like a double harp, but it’s different. Garen told me it’s called a Cross Harp, because of the way the two rows of strings cross over each other. He also told me the strings are set up a bit differently than a double harp. Instead of having 2 rows of the same strings, cross harps are arranged like the keys on a piano. This means it can be fully chromatic without needing levers!!!

It looks really cool - check it out!

(PS - they still don’t let me try to play the harps. I really want to and I’ll try really really really really hard to be calm and not knock anything over!!)
