The glass harpist is a fixture of the Old Town waterfront. He plays all sorts of classical favorites and popular songs, and there’s always a crowd of folks standing around listening—and watching. It’s a fascinating instrument and quite the visual spectacle. What’s more, he’ll explain the history of the instrument to you if you stick around long enough.
