Tugging at the harp strings

Bronn and Katherine Journey will fill the Lincoln Cultural Center with the music of angels this Sunday.
“Everyone loves the harp,” said Rick Ramseur, president of the Lincoln County Concert Association. “That’s why they play it in heaven.”
Harpist Bronn Journey and his soprano wife, Katherine Journey, will perform a wide variety of music – everything from popular movie songs to Beethoven-composed sonatas. The harpist will also talk with the audience about the instrument and take requests.
Bronn Journey has been playing the harp since he was a sixth-grade student in Seattle. He has a degree in music from the University of Washington and more than 20 albums to his name.
The Lincoln Concert Association had to set a performance date for a time the couple would be in the region – the Journeys drive to all their gigs, not because they’re afraid of flying, but because the harp is so large.
Acts brought to Lincoln County by the concert association usually perform at the James W. Warren Citizens Center, but organizers felt the Cultural Center better suit the Journeys.
“For a small acoustical performance like this, it’s more intimate,” Ramseur said. “Everybody should have an excellent seat.”
So anyone interested in a heavenly interpretation of “New York, New York,” “Amazing Grace” or “Bridge Over Troubled Water” should visit the cultural center March 4 at 3:30 p.m.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students. For more information call (704) 735-7287.
