Many thanks to Linda Hall for the photo.

A privilege to play kontrabasharpa in the largest gathering of players of the instrument in the UK – many thanks Vicki Swan! Having heard what Magnus Holmström can do with my kontrabasharpa, I now need to start playing it more and talking about it less

Lots of people had a go on the kontrabas, but I was spellbound when Magnus Holmstrom took a hold and played a few tunes including Polska efter Erlandsson.

What this showed is that there is absolutely nothing wrong with the sound of my kontrabasharpa – I just need to learn how to play it properly!
