America's Sung Heritage

ALL HARPS – LEAD SHEET – a wonderful collection of American tunes!


This collection of lead sheets includes history notes about each song as well as alternate versions for lever harp and pedal harps, taking into consideration harps without full levers. With this collection you’ll always have plenty of music for American holidays and plenty of options for a themed program about our great country, including a bit of history for program notes. With few exceptions, all are playable on lever harps of all sizes. Most songs include a history of the music, including dates.

Keys have been chosen with several things in mind: keys available to C and Eb tunings for lever harps, the range of therapy harps and singing range. Very often when I perform these I hear people singing or humming along so a good singing range is included for all these titles. If the original key was F, moving the piece to the key of C moves it out of the singing range for most people. Alternate keys are suggested only if the singable key is out of the range of your harp.  There are sound samples below the list of titles.
