Fundraisers for WAFHS


There are two items for sale, proceeds of which are used to benefit WAFHS' educational funds. These two items (the The Song of the Selkie CD and The Finale Book) are described below.


The Song of the Selkie

At the 2000 benefit concert, Scottish storyteller Heather Yule told an original musical story featuring performances by a variety of harpers from the WAFHS. The Song of the Selkie is the story of Sandy, a selkie, whose sealskin is stolen from her, leading her on a long and arduous journey to recover it. The premier performance of The Song of the Selkie was recorded live at that concert, and the recordings are being sold to benefit the Washington Area Folk Harp Society. Additional information, sound clips, and ordering information about this recording may be found here: Selkie CD.
 
The Finale Book

The WAFHS has published a collection of the Finale music from the first 10 annual benefit concerts. This popular collection contains 46 tunes, arranged for solo harp or multiple harps. Many of the arrangements include accompaniment parts. The book costs $15, plus any shipping costs. You may purchase the book through Melody Music or by contacting David Crookston.
