Well, not surprisingly, the two players who solved the riddle were the ones I aped. Both Kirk and Gary got BINGO's, albeit with a few clues thrown in from yours, truly. Kirk arrived at the answer a short while before Gary, so he will host RR #975 this coming weekend.
See below for the reveal / pun.

Herewith, the riddle:
Having skills when she plucks at the string
Always thrills me; it sounds like she sings
Really softly. Angel-like.
Pedaling, as if on bike
Spin-class never had one of these things …
THE ACROSTIC LIMERICK SPELLED OUT "HARPS" / THE PERSON PLAYING THIS INSTRUMENT IS EITHER KNOWN AS A HARPIST OR HARPER
What amazes me ‘bout this musician,
Every time that she has an audition,
Is the dress that she wears
Really’s shear, and it bares
Derriere. Judges like her volition.
THE ACROSTIC LIMERICK SPELLED OUT "WEIRD"
At times, she will play
For a church’s charity.
I think that’s plucky.
ANOTHER WORD FOR CHURCH CHARITY EVENT IS "BAZAAR"
And in her spare time
She’s reading up on fashion;
To replace worn dress.
THE HARPER'S BAZAAR IS A FASHION MAGAZINE, DATING BACK TO THE 1860'S
If you’ve got the clue
The reveal will be easy:
THE HARPER'S BIZARRE (the pun)
JUST LIKE ME ... WEIRD, BIZARRE, and at times PLUCKY ...
See what you get when you let ME win the weekly riddle???!!! ;^)
