Craig harpist to perform at Moffat County Library

After her sixth hernia surgery due to her trumpet playing, doctors told Charleah Firestone she should stop. But it wasn’t until her twelfth hernia surgery that Firestone made the decision to quit playing the trumpet as it was hurting her health. A trumpet major in college, a performer in the Yampa Valley Brass group and a musician all her life, it would be difficult to simply quit making music. After a coworker told her about a hospice harpist who played by her father’s bedside and created the most beautiful music she’d ever heard, and attending a harp concert in Grand Junction, Firestone said she was totally enthralled with it.
