What is the autoharp? Why do I play it? I don't answer those questions but I do share some of my autoharp music with you as I prepare to re-launch Autoharp Radio. Listen. Subscribe. Get free music at

I started to seriously play the autoharp in 1997. I was amazed by its versatility and 5-octaves that one could play on it. That's led a life-long journey of exploration of the instrument. Now, I am primarily a singer. However, I have done my best to offer a new sound to the autoharp community. 

The songs I picked for this show are a mix of vocal and instrumental music where the autoharp plays an important part in the individual song or tune. I created it primarily for my website in conjunction with where you can find all sorts of great autoharp music tips and suggestions on how you can get started playing the autoharp. If you would like to see some tutorials, please email me.
