Jamey Turner's Glass Harp

I met three great kids this weekend, at a wedding. They were experimenting with variable wavelengths of sound, as propagated through friction, water and crystal.

OK, what they were really doing is that thing where you wet your finger and trace circles on the rim of a crystal glass. I love that.

I told one of them about Jamey Turner's glass harp, and suggested she check him out on YouTube. But maybe her Mom or Dad, or one of her uncles, aunts or grandparents will see this and forward it:

I've been listening to Jamey Turner on street corners for darned near two decades. He makes astonishing music. He's a born educator. He plays at Mozart Festivals around the country. If you ever have the chance to see (and hear) him, you'll be cheating yourself if you pass it up.

Here are two videos. The first is Mozart.

I'll let you guess on this one. Jamey gives the answer at the very end.

Did he say Jethro Tull? Cause it did sounds sort of like Jethro Tull!

Awesome. :)
