The trouble with cameras these days is that when you take a photo and the file size is so big , Dave has got around this problem by using various computer programs to decrease the quality of photos so that we have been able to use them on Facebook and my website http://www.tripleharps.com
The only problem arises then when a photo is needed for a press release and then one tends to find that all the photos have been changed into jpegs which are a smaller size than the original. Such a problem has occurred during the last few days and the weather has not been good enough to take a hep up on to the moors for a photo shoot.
Hopefully the weather will improve over the next few days and then we can go and do a shoot on the local moors and we will have some photos then of the new harps as well
This morning we discovered that part of the wall had collapsed at the side of the field and our sheep were having a good nosey at the opening which had appeared we were left with little choice but to rebuild the part which had collapsed which took about twenty minutes. The afternoon was spent teaching pupils on the Welsh Tripleharp.
Dave my husband continues to work on redesigning my website www.tripleharps.com
Eventually the plan is that my Blog, Facebook, twitter and my website will all be linked together and should auto update
As part of the continued process of re-designing the website Dave has scanned more than one hundred thank you letters from Brides and Grooms I have played for, Recitals and concerts I have performed as well as Charity fund raisers
I hope to be able to display many of the cards and letters I have received from all over the world on the website soon
Fiona Katie Plays in concert at the Farm
Here she is seen playing Big AL all the music drumming percussion, bells etc is all created by Fiona Katie Roberts
Fiona Katie is a unique performer she uses NO backing tracks or musical tricks whatsoever
here is a quote about Fiona Katie from another website
Fiona Katie Roberts
Fiona-Katie started her musical career at the age of 11 years old and went on to achieve prize winning performances at both concerts and festivals.
After following her dream to research and resurrect the rare 16th C Italianate tripleharp, Fiona-Katie now designs and makes her own exquisite harps and has a collection of over 26 historical and modern harps, with many period costumes to add extra special ambience to any event.
Fiona-Katie has memorised many hours of music and has a highly impressive repertoire which remains timeless and covers many different cultures.Fiona-Katie continues to deliver time after time giving show stopping, foot tapping performances at both concerts and festivals and has worked alongside top bands whilst on tour in America.
Dave continues to re-design and build my new website as well as starting research for his new book.
We had a flash flood late last night at the farm so in the pitch black we had to erect ladders to clean out blocked gutters around the farm
The strength of the water brought down some dry stone wall so Dave my husband is hoping for some drier weather tomorrow so that he can get on with rebuilding that
Tomorrow I am teaching so I have been busy tuning the new harps, sorting out the parrots and I am still in the process of wiping a layer of dust off everything after all the building work which took place in the house during the last couple of months.
Here is a short video of music performed by fiona Katie Roberts
