I've played about a dozen of these tuned so far and Laurie Riley and Leslie McMichael certainly have out together a nice book with catchy tunes and their accompaniment. Each tune has a little historical comment or advice on how to play it, enjoy it, or consider the dance tempo.It'
Celtic Music for Folk Harp is my favorite book to play from! The notation is clear and easy to read, and the information about each tune is interesting and helpful in getting the right feel for each song. It contains many beautiful tunes, and I especially like how they are grouped together by skill levels--ranging from moderate to advanced. I was a beginning harpist looking for new material when I purchased the book, and wondered if I was getting beyond my level too soon. However, the moderate level songs were not too hard to start out with and once you master them, it's easy to move on to the next level, so don't be intimidated by the skill levels! This book has helped me improve my playing and allowed me to add several new songs to my repertoire. I highly recommend it for all beginning to intermediate harpists looking for some lovely tunes to play.
Great music book, with some lovely tunes! Laurie Riley and Leslie McMichael did a wonderful job arranging these traditional Celtic harp pieces, in addition to including information on how each one should be played. They also note the "difficulty level" of each tune, (i.e., "moderate - advanced"), and include some lyrics as well. The last three tunes are offered for wire-strung harp, but can be played on a regular folk harp as well...A great find!
