For enthusiasts of early banjo
Anybody ( Lisa?? ) know what this is or how it is tuned?
Apparently it's either "Harp-Zither" from around 1900, or a "MacArthur Harp" from around 1965: That and more here: http://www.fretlesszithers.net/harpochord.htm
PS I found it by remembering Margaret MacArthur's name, and hearing about her in the folk/early music circles of 1970's New England. A vdeo is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTZxjH_aADw
I admit I found her style rather annoying at the time, but I was a serious young man, and others found it enchanting. I've mellowed since then.
