Re: [Harp-L] Keith Dunn was:Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee concert vid

I first saw Keith Dunn in Harvard Square around 1970.  He just hung out all day playing the harp, in my opinion badly.  I was distressed to hear another yet harp player on the street just wailing away with no regard for the instrument and its reputation.

I heard Keith in the same place about a year later.  He was sounding better. A year of blowing harp all day long had apparently taught him something.

I heard him again a year after that, and by now he was sounding like a musician, not to mention an  accomplished harp player.  At that point, I decided that I was going to carry a harp with me everywhere I went and play it whenever I had the chance.  Which I still do.  And which I advise my students to do, one and all.

After all, it worked for Keith.

Regards, Richard Hunter
