Dream Gig - #Harpril - Day 13
Right now, I have two dream gigs.
One would be an ongoing gig at a nursing home/assisted living or hotel - once a week for several months, or once a month for a year. I have returned to certain places, like the Cottage Treasures Tea House for their Christmas events a couple of years in a row. Being able to return and play at the same location allows me to get to know some of the staff members and even some residents/customers. It's rewarding to hear "I remember you from last year and am looking forward to hearing you play again this evening."
The other dream gig I have would be to travel and do a concert tour.
"Bethany Murphy, Harp tour - buy tickets now!"
But it's a dream, so there are no links for purchasing tickets at this time.
I have, however, traveled with a small harp several times and played in weddings and for special events in Brazil. Though not a concert tour, I'll take it!
I used to dream of being able to take harp gigs and then hire other harpists to take part of the gig. Of course it's all discussed with the client and agreed upon ahead of time. This actually did happen for a Christmas open house a couple of years ago and I was able to split a gig with a harpist friend, Rachel.
