Singing With the Harp

I was watching a YouTube Video of a woman married to a descendant of Yeats talking about how you seldom hear any singing with the harp, and she thought that was a shame because historically the harp was used to tell tales or sing. And I realized that she was right. The traveling poet would carry his harp and when he strummed it folks knew it was time to listen and would gather around.

Thankfully, there are still some telling a story with the harp.
