Once Upon A Harp: The Music of Turlough O'Carolan
Steve Baughman is a pioneer of arranging the music of Turlough O’Carolan for solo guitar. His “pandemic project“ was to arrange, master, and then record a CD of the music, all on one guitar. In this event he will be sharing pieces from “Once Upon a Harp.”
Patrice Haan has long been an acolyte of O’Carolan’s music. Former director of the nonprofit Healing Muses, most days Patrice plays harp for cancer patients.
The last of the Irish bards, Turlough O'Carolan was a blind Celtic harper, composer and singer, who is considered by many to be Ireland's national composer.

Auburn House Concerts (AHC) offers private acoustic performances in an intimate setting at our home in Auburn, Placer County, California.
We began hosting house concerts in the fall of 2007. Our house has a fabulous living room space, with a hardwood floor and high ceiling, that is just made for music. We also know lots of marvelous musicians, so this is a perfect fit.
If you have never been to a house concert then you must attend one: you're in for a treat! Seeing artists perform ‘up close and personal’ is a very different experience than you get in a nightclub, concert hall or festival. Minimal (if any) amplification is used, for one thing. The audience gets a chance to meet the artist during the mid-concert break as well as after the performance.
Check out the videos that have been shot during some of the AHC performances.
