My heart's in the (Laurel) Highlands

by Cynthia Shelhart in


My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer
A-chasing the wild deer, and following the roe;
My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go.
--Robert Burns

I had a great time in the Laurel Highlands of western Pennsylvania when I judged the Scottish Harp Society of America (SHSA) competition and performed at the Ligonier Highland Games on September 10. Congratulations to all who participated at this year's competition! And thanks to Melanie Sandrock & June Sechrist for organizing a great event. Hope to see you all again soon!
