EXPLORING HISTORICAL SOURCES: EARLY GAELIC HARP REPERTOIRE FOR ALL HARPS

4 DAY COURSE: Sat / Sun / Mon / Tue 9am - 10.30am
TUTOR: James Ruff

LEVEL: Intermediate (see brochure p23 for explanation)
TEACHING METHOD E+M: Teaching will be initially by ear with written music

To play the Early Gaelic Harp means to become a sleuth in search of early repertoire – a challenge in a culture of oral tradition! Come discover where to find early Scottish and Irish harp repertoire and learn representative pieces from each source along the way. We will focus on Edward Bunting’s field manuscripts, 17th/18th century Scottish lute manuscripts, 18th/19th century publications, and later traditional archive recordings. These treasures all yield important clues on arranging for the early Gaelic harp – and all harps – along historical lines,where specific fingering, damping and use of the bass hand greatly enhance both expression and style.
