Lesl Harker, Irish flute
Teacher and player of the traditional Irish concert flute,Lesl specializes in teaching the repertoire and fluid old-style music of East County Galway. Drawn from long apprenticeship to "The Mighty Raff", a relationship which lasted up to the end of his life, she published two award-winning Rafferty tune books beginning in 2005. The "Distinguished Achievement in the Preservation of Irish Music and Culture" award came in 2009 from Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, the international Irish music association. Since 2011, a Union County grant award has led to "Tunes and Tales of Old East Galway", a yearly standing-room-only event on the music of the Rafferty heritage.

Lesl appeared at Philadelphia Flute Tunes in 2010 with original Chieftains flutist Michael Tubridy and Msgr Fr. Charlie Coen. She appeared at the New Jersey Folk Festival again in 2012. In October 2013 she presented the Mike Rafferty tribute at the Hurdy Gurdy Folk club in Fairlawn, NJ. Lesl serves as master for Irish flute apprentices in the NJ and Pennsylvania State Arts Councils.

Flute and whistle tutoring is available from her home studio, and Lesl plays on the first Sunday of most months at the Irish session in Molly Maguire's pub and restaurant in Clark, NJ.

Visitors are welcome to contact Lesl at her flute website, iflute.weebly/com
