Hello, good gentles!

I apologize for, in my excitement, putting the cart before the horse and 
forgetting the demands of courtesy in favor of inquiry.

Thank you for welcoming me to your list.  My name is Leucum merch Ouein, and 
I live in the East Kingdom Barony of Carolingia.  I'm a poet learning to 
play the harp, and I can sing.  I've been to four events, the first of which 
was Harpers' Retreat last year; I and my 29-string will faithfully attend 
the next one.  Will anyone else in listshot be attending?

The CD I mentioned is titled, "TWO WORLDS OF THE WELSH HARP" with back-cover 
explanation, "From the Robert ap Huw Manuscript (1613) and the volumes of 
Edward Jones's /Musical and Poetical Relicks of the Welsh Bards/ (1784-1825) 
played on historical harps by William Taylor".  The CD is out on Dorian 
Recordings; we bought it through a "twelve-for-a-penny-then-we-own you" 
music club which happens -- surprisingly -- to put out some really enjoyable 
selections.  My harp teacher tells me that the interesting 'tuptuptup' sound 
and the buzzing twang indicate horsehair and wire strings in use...

Many thanks, again, for your leads and encouragement.
