Man – keeping up this pace of about a short magazine article a day is getting difficult! I need to come up with shorter blogs.
Here’s one. Just a quick list of the latest videos folks have alerted me to…
The ever-prolific and creative Jason Carter keeps upping the ante in his vids. The latest, “You Shine,” includes a “harp guitar headstock eye view” of the proceedings.
Andreas & Katja from Germany just posted a video of “A Guater Tropfen” at last year’s HGG7. That’s Andy Wahlberg (in tights) doing sing-a-long cue cards offstage. I noticed that browsing the “similar” videos down the right column leads to a whole bunch of Schrammelgitarre videos by all sorts of players. BTW, Andreas now owns a new Brunner OHG travel harp guitar, so he can finally pursue the contemporary steel-string aspect (when he’s not doing his relentless ukulele and banjo gigs).
And Joe Morgan sent a link to one I hadn’t seen by the Sweet Hollywaiians (they have a bunch). This is a terrific band in Japan, including a great Knutsen harp-uke strummer. He contacted me way back, but I’m not sure if his uke is in our Inventory…any Japanese readers out there want to ask him for pics?!
