The pleasing sound of the autoharp, an instrument that has long been enjoyed by musical enthusiasts of all ages, has joined forces with the music of acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, and other traditional instruments. Autoharp Concerto is a mix of melodious ballads and captivating standards, a sonic swirl of strums and picks, led by the lively accents and ethereal plucks of the autoharp.
With autoharp performances by Marsha Jones of the Grandpa Jones Family (accompanied by the legendary Joe Maphis on guitar) as well as contemporary bluegrass musician David Johnson, Autoharp Concerto is a virtuoso showcase for this timeless and unique instrument. All the best traditional and sentimental tunes are played with the earnest zeal and the fun-loving spirit that is the essence of the autoharp.
