Well, I've never tried it (don't own one, so I've never been tempted) but I
did recently pick up a CD of Finbar and George Furey with Scottish cittern
and psaltery player Bob Stewart called "Tomorrow We Part". The psaltery, which
in the sleeve notes is described as a "table harp", indeed sounds like a metal
The album is quite interesting, but much more because of Finbar's piping (even
though on some tracks it already displays the faster, faster, faster... playing
style that - but that's my personal opinion, of course - wrecked Finbar's
piping style) which at some points has quite interesting use of the regulators.
BTW does anyone have a clue when this album was recorded ? The only date on it
is 1998, so the CD is quite recent, but it's obvious from the photos (which
show a much younger and thinner Finbar Furey than some of the more recent Furey
albums) that the album must be much older.
