Title: Lyon & Healy (early Washburn co.) harp
Post by: Pike on February 17, 2010, 02:47:07 PM
This harp resides at the Pittock Mansion, Portland, Oregon. It is similar to Harp#501 c.1889 that appears on page 64 of John Teagles Washburn book.

That is a beautiful work of art.  Wonder what something like that goes for?  Did you know that the harp is the only common musical instrument around that can trace it's roots to a European beginning? Yep, that's right.

I got some fiddles, some guitars, a bouzouki, a piano and some other stuff.

Hey guys, do I repeat myself a lot?  I hope not to very much. Sorry.

Heh, heh, to be honest Quinn I still think of you as a newcomer.  It's hard to believe you've been on the forum almost two years now.


It doesn't seem like two years to me either, seems like maybe a year, if that much.  Tempus fugit  when it's all fun.
