  1. My father came to America from Cosenza , Calabria . He taught me how to play the guitar, mandolin and concertina. I would like to buy a Lira Calabrese, which is a Lyre bowed instrument from Calabria but can not find one here in America. It is used mostly for the Tarantella. Any help from your organization would be Appreciated. Thanks, Henry Russi
