They are similar, but a zither is generally played with hammers, whereas the autoharp is strummed and has a series of keys which are pressed to dampen the strings not required.
Music lesson over, but I'm so glad someone else remembers Ms Abicair! Happy days.

Anyone remember the first soaps, the "Grove family" and the "Appleyards". I thought they were real and could never understand why no-one noticed a camera in the house!

I loved the Groves, first soap I ever saw, never saw The Appleyards.

I`ve just googled Shirley Abicair, and found that she`s still with us, she`ll be 84 next month, hard to reconcile that fact with memories of a pretty girl making her own kind of music.

How about Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop, and another favourite of mine, Terry Hall with Lenny the Lion?

I remember both of those. Wasn't it Lamb Chop who said, "Mr. Maaayor" ?

There was a vent act guy named Savine who had a puppet called Daisy-May and a real dog. The climax to every show was to say "Shut that ruddy dog up". It always brought the house down!
