These three strains are still the essence of traditional Celtic harp music today, with the lullabies, laments and dance tunes that soothe, restore and cheer the soul. Each day we will focus on a different strain, learning tunes that exemplify the qualities of slumber, sorrow and merriment. We’ll also work on some accompaniment ideas to create effective arrangements Level: Intermediate/Advanced, Hands-on, Lead-sheets provided (ability to read music not necessary but helpful)
