Our speaker this month is Julie Beaven, who has spoken to and entertained many Probus Clubs, W.I.’s and U3A’s over a period of several years.
Julie is a very talented musician and plays several instruments, including the Hammer Dulcimer and the Clarsach (or Celtic) Harp. She is a member of The Nonsuch Dulcimer Club and is Mentor to the National Youth Harp Orchestra of Great Britain.
Apart from her music, Julie also gives talks on her previous careers as a teacher in a Middle East Arab School and as a Sub-Lieutenant Naval Reserve Officer.
However, on 2nd May, Julie will be concentrating on her Hammer Dulcimer and two recently purchased Mountain Dulcimers. She will talk about the instruments, their history and how she discovered them. She will, of course, also play the Dulcimers in a short concert.
Julie’s presentation promises to be very entertaining and informative.
