Abbie Green, 16, played her harp Tuesday afternoon at the Sedalia Area Farmers Market. Green, the daughter of Alan and Brenda Green, of Sedalia, said she has only been playing for approximately a year this June. She doesn’t take lessons but taught herself how to play by watching YouTube videos.

“It’s my first time playing in public,” she said softly. “I’m a little nervous.”

And although she played softly, the wind caught the music transporting its heavenly melody to nearby stands at the market.

The SAFM will be having other musicians playing throughout the season. For additional information on playing an instrument at the market call Breada Raetz at 281-7244 or Bev Rollings at 620-6841 or visit the SAFM website at
