Somerset 2024 Workshops with Cindy Shelhart

Hey there! I’m looking forward to seeing you in person and online at the Somerset Folk Harp Festival this July. I’ll be teaching 4 workshops.

First, for ALL harpers, there’s a lead sheet arranging workshop called “On the Other Hand,” where we’ll create on-the-go arrangements with lead sheets and accompaniment patterns.

Then, 3 workshops especially for double-strung harps:

  • There’s a session on “Adapting Classical Music for Double-Strung Harp.” (You know it’s not just for pianos anymore, right?)
  • Another workshop, “The Double Effect,” gives you arranging tips and tricks to make your DSH sound more like a double.
  • And in “Pop Goes the Double,” we’ll explore modern sounds that you can add to any double-strung arrangement.

I’ll also be performing on the last day of the festival.

If you still need to register for Somerset, first of all, what are you waiting for? Come join us!

And, if you’re reading/watching this before May 1st, 2024, you can also save $100 on your festival ticket. Go to the festival website at to learn more.

Hope to see you there!
