Southern Maryland Celtic Festival Harp Competition

This competition is SHSA Sanctioned and uses SHSA rules but is open to tunes from any of the Celtic Nations.  We had a good representation of Scottish and Irish melodies.  Our judge, Sue Richards, did a fantastic job providing great comments and a wonderful workshop.  Although we had a small field, the level of play was very good.  The Virginia Harp Center, the prize sponsor, provided an amazing array of items to be awarded along with the Games Committee’s etched glass mugs and medals.
