For those of you who remember, I competed in the 1998
Lochaber Trump competition at the Grandfather Mountain
Highland Games and won first place. I just returned from
the 1999 Games where I placed second. The first place
winner was Lawrence Drummond from Santa Cruz, CA. He
is truly an excellent trump player and I greatly enjoyed
meeting him and playing with him. For those who do not
know, the trump is the same instrument we call the Jew's
Harp and has been used as a folk instrument in Scotland
for centuries. It was most likely introduced by returning
Crusaders. There is a Jew's Harp Guild in America for
those interested (link below).
Anyone who wished to come by the museum for a trump
demonstration is welcome to!
Aye,
Matt Newsome
museum curator
