THOSE with a passion for folk music in the Far North are being welcomed to enjoy the sounds of the harp with FNQ Harp Connection at their retreat style workshop coming up this weekend at Quinola Lakes. 

Whether you play the instrument or simply just love to listen in with endless amounts of tea, the group is welcoming all to attend for its first ever getaway.

Organiser and facilitator Loni Fitzpatrick said that this retreat is a great way to engage with others interested in the art of harp playing. 

“We decided to host this retreat as a way to reconnect, reengage and rejuvenate and it is a wonderful opportunity for harpists to meet, learn and simply enjoy playing our instrument,” she said. 

“I'm incredibly appreciative to be a part of creating such an opportunity for not only myself but harpists and personally I have found it difficult to connect in person with fellow harpists up here in the Far North. 

“We’re blessed to play such a beautiful instrument that does more than meets the eye. With the current circumstances picking up an instrument like the harp is a very rewarding experience.”

The retreat will be held on the Quinola Lakes in Malanda on July 30 to August 1. To be apart of the retreat, RVSP on https://fnqharpconnection. mailchimpsites.com/fnq-harpretreat
