John Dalton aka Harp John has been playing the harp for many years. Fluent in three different types of harp (the Celtic harp, the larger Paraguayan harp and the Electroharp) he plays a diverse variation of music, from popular classics to Strauss waltzes, jazz standards, pop hits, golden oldies and a wide range of Celtic and Latin American pieces as well.
Furthermore since coming to the Algarve, John has even started to play typical Portuguese Fado.
Standing Ovation Algarve has the great pleasure of launching him in his first public appearance.
On 6th and 7th June, John will be giving a talk on the history of the harp, illustrated with many musical examples from around the world. The story of the harp will take listeners from ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia to ancient Ireland and Britain across to South America with the Conquistadors and on through the centuries to the present day.
A fun, light hearted and relaxing experience not to be missed.
The event will be held in the Raj Indian Restaurant in the Hotel Garbe and will include a three course Indian Dinner with wine. - 7.30 pm - 8.00pm - 30 Euros per person.
