OF NOTE

Ex-columnist Kenny goes Celtic

Don Kenny, a former Japan Times columnist who covered theater, films, popular music and kyogen, is giving daily demonstrations of Celtic harp at Mitsukoshi Department Store in Nihonbashi, Tokyo, through Dec. 15.

Kenny will do a 30-minute "Japan by Harp" show at 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. each day in the special event hall on the seventh floor in conjunction with an exhibition of works by woodcraft artists from Hokkaido. The shows are free.

Kenny's harp was made by Yasuaki Ikeno, one of the Hokkaido craftsmen.

Kenny will play a broad range of Japanese songs arranged for the harp and sing both in Japanese and in English, from "Sakura, Sakura (Cherry Blossoms)," and "Hamachidori (Beach Plover)" to "Bara-ga Saita (One Red Rose)."
