Lisa Lynne and Aryeh Frankfurter introduced Del Norte County to the Celtic harp, the Swedish nyckelharpa, the Ukrainian bandura and the cittern on Friday.
More than 110 people packed the Del Norte County Library to hear them play traditional music from Sweden and Ireland as well as their own compositions.
