More and more these days, Google Alerts drops a video gift into my inbox of someone performing one of my pieces. Today I was floored by an arrangement of my “New Blues” the likes of which I have NEVER seen before — and I’ll wager you haven’t either. I spontaneously clapped out loud at the end, here alone in my studio!I spontaneously clapped out loud - all alone in my studio! Click To Tweet
I can’t even tell you for sure whether this is 5 women playing one big instrument – or 5 individual instruments playing one piece, but their sense of ensemble, fun, musicality and physicality with this is really wonderful. Brava to each and every one of them – and to A.Eglite for this fabulous arrangement!
Please watch and then go to YouTube and use the comments to tell them how much you enjoyed it – and if you play the harp, scroll down for info on where to learn more Blues — and where to get the harp arrangement this is based on.

Then post your version of my “New Blues” on YouTube – on whatever instrument you play – and blow me away! I can’t wait to see it.
These gals got rhythm alright! I love how their bodies move fluidly, spontaneously, independently absolutely in synch with the music. Hurray! Thanks again.
Wow, i was so excited to see this, as i was introduced to this beautiful instrument by a young lady in my community from Latvia. It is a traditional Latvian instrument, she had heard i played the harp, introduce herself and we have played together a few times. It was very exciting for both of us, and we hope to play together in the future, maybe i will film us and send it to you. Anyway just loving this blues harp style course.
All my love,
