So that'll just be 7 bars of hollywood glisses then??
Ben Creighton Griffiths is a total star, and there doesn't seem to be much he can't do... including teaching sporting legend and ex Wales Rugby captain, Gareth Thomas, to play the harp for ITV's Born to Shine programme.
I particularly liked the way Gareth said it "was hard to play the harp when you have finger's like cumberland sausages."
Above is a short trailer clip for the show, but you can see a video of Gareth and Ben playing by clicking on this link scroll down the page and click on "Gareth Thomas"
Well done Gareth & Ben !!
Ben has been doing amazing things for charity for years and is a brilliant ambassador for the harp, as well as being a really great harp player.
After a crazy summer where there has been rioting on the streets in the UK, isn't it great to see a positive role model on TV for a young male teenager?
Mariano Gonzalez is a very interesting musician playing on what seems to be (his own design) a unique custom made electric pitch bending paraguayan midi harp!
A great video on his website here
Plus a YouTube clip playing with Pianist Bob Rozario and Percussionist Alfredo Albarenga. El Cumbanchero composed by Rafael Hernadez.
check out about 2'20 in after the percussion solo for the pitch bending.
No pitch bending here - but a lovely YouTube of Mariano playing the Recuerdos de la Alhambra
