Always a spanner...!
With any high pressure performing or recording, I always say to people you have to be prepared for the unexpected and for all the spanners in the works you never imagined and to go with the flow!....
So, after having all my equipment checked and serviced before the big event,... whilst we were sound checking the harp, I found a buzz coming from one of the strings, which appeared mysteriously out of the woodwork (literally!) My worst nightmare, and even before starting track 1!!.. Trying to subside my inner panic, I called Niebisch & Tree harp specialists, who calmly talked me through the issue and asked me to send photos and videos to them. After some consulation, and then testing it through the system, luckily it was resolved! ...phewf!
