McPharlin Music Shop has made its home in Harmony for 16 years and was formerly known as McPharlin Guitar & Violin. Founders/owners, Bob and Shelley McPharlin, carved out a unique niche by providing repair service as well as instruction for stringed instruments. One year ago, Bob McPharlin passed away and his wife Shelley was left to keep the business and the passion-driven musical journey thriving.
The Open House is a way of commemorating the shop’s history and at the same time, expressing a new beginning. Shelley’s family has rallied to the cause and together they are forging ahead to re-envision the future of the shop, beginning with its new name, McPharlin Music Shop.
