I play the harp, I sing, and the music's sweet as all heck. Let's package it up in a convenient take-it-with-you format!

About this project

This is a CD of all the harp music I've been working on this past year. Half are songs that tell stories of love, lust, longing, and only a little gore. The other half are very pretty harp solos. 

The money I'm raising on Kickstarter will fund string replacement, studio recording, mixing and mastering, license fees for the two tracks under copyright, and reproduction. 

You'll notice that the dollar amount seems awfully small. Gracious, it's tiny! My recording engineer may be suffering from chronic self-esteem issues, and has refused to take more than $[a small number] per hour. Luckily, the way Kickstarter operates allows me to raise more than my goal. Any money the project takes in beyond the laughably low figure you see will go straight into the engineer's pocket. 

Tentative track list:

Tiny fish for Japan (by Stan Rogers) (instrumental)
Auld lang syne
Wind that shakes the barley / The rights of man (instrumental)
Planxty Irwin (instrumental)
Thanks a lot (by Raffi!)
Barney and Katie
The lark in the morning
She mov'd through the faire (instrumental)
O'Carolan medley (instrumental)
Flowers of Edinburgh (instrumental)
St. Basil's hymn (instrumental)
Bogie's bonnie belle
The cruel mother
