Tunin’ the Harp

A popular and surprisingly hilarious activity at last night MusicNow Festival show featuring Joanna Newsom. An impromptu Q&A was the recurring theme. One audience member: “Why does the harp go out of tune so much?” JN, with a winsome smile and far-off gaze: “… Why .. is the Sun warm?” (audience laughs heartily) and she adds: “if you’re a harpist, they say you spend half the time tuning your harp and the other half playing an out-of-tune harp.”
