Celtic lap harp will travel

Here's something you won't see in just any fire chief's office: a Celtic lap harp.

But Myakka Fire Chief Danny Cacchiotti has one.

Not that he knows how to play it.

"I think if you know how to play a piano, you might be able to play this," Cacchiotti told me.

The lap harp, in like-new condition, was donated to the Myakka City Foundation by a resident who moved out of the area.  

It will be auctioned 6:30 p.m. June 14 at a fundraiser for the foundation at the Polo Grill in Lakewood Ranch.
For anyone who has missed playing a lap harp, or just wants a beautiful conversation piece for their home, this could be a golden opportunity.

"My question is does anyone know how to play this harp, or know someone that can play it?" Cacchiotti asks.   If so, give him a call at 941-812-3029.
