Winter's Featured Harp Music:

This quarter's featured harp music are three tunes in lead sheet format, intended for the 2021 PSFHS Winter Folk Harp Festival which was cancelled due to Covid-19. Winter festival program director Harper Tasche writes, "Here are three great tunes that are a delight to play and sound lovely on the harp. The first is 'Early One Morning' from England, which may be familiar as the theme for the beloved CBC 'Friendly Giant' children's TV series. The second tune is 'Garryowen' which appears to be an Irish adaptation of a Scots melody, and is widely known for its military use (as well as being a great jig). The third, 'Michael Row De Boat Ashore,' originated as a work song in the African-American Gullah culture of coastal South Carolina and Georgia, and gained popularity through the folk music revival of the 1950s and 60s." NOTE: if you have a PSFHS Harpers' Songbook, please print these tunes and add them to your notebook.

Now, on to the music!
