Hi Lorraine! I'm so glad you reached out to fellow So. Fla. players! I play with two others here in Coral Springs - Francie and Colleen. We tend to be pretty eclectic in our music and are strictly non-professional and have a great time! It would be super to get together for some psaltery time. I will be out of the state visiting family for the month of Sept so let's connect when I get back! Yours, Jane Hawkins

Featured Video

Amplified Psaltery with Cello Strings built by Rick Long

This video is a personal favorite because it shows a unique type of bowed psaltery with a gorgeous sound. When I heard it I broke out in goose bumps!
