Linda DeBrita (Harp)

Born: USA
Died: March 12, 2008 - Scotia, New York, USA

Linda DeBrita was a classically trained pianist whose love of Celtic music ultimately led her to the harp and the hammered dulcimer. She performed on both instruments as a soloist and with other instrumentalists (especially Kate Oaks) in various church, social and community settings, and teaches hammered dulcimer. In her Celtic-style acoustic ensemble, Lakehill Strings 'n Things, she played both harp and hammered dulcimer. By profession, Linda was a Family Nurse Practitioner and Hospice RN, and combined her interests in music and medicine to become a Certified Music Practitioner which involved playing therapeutic music on the harp at patients' bedsides.

Linda DeBrita and her husband John (official harp mover) lived in Scotia, New York, and have four grown children. Linda died peacefully on March 12, 2008, after a long battle with ovarian cancer.
