Unleash the soulful melodies of the blues on your harp with our exclusive “Discover the Blues: Harp Mastery Workshop.” This immersive course is your ticket to unlocking the secrets of this iconic musical genre. This course is inspired by the renowned book, “How to Play Blues on the Harp” by I. Mac Perry, celebrated by Melody’s Music/Afghan Press.
Mary Radspinner at Afghan Press says: “Mr. Perry had a masters in divinity, wrote books, cooked, gardened (BS in Horticulture), and was into archeology, having found fossils in his own yard in Florida. He was very energetic and brilliant.” Additional notes: He was a painter, artist, and played multiple instruments. He painted the cover for his Blues book. His cookbooks and historical fiction books are available on Kindle. He published sixteen books on topics in religion, landscaping, regional history, archeological discovery, music, food, and he also wrote historical fiction. During mid-career he was awarded an honorary Ph.D. in Literature.To get a better idea of Mr. Perry’s brilliance, please read his obituary HERE
