Here is a ten-minute recording of me practicing in the living room on my purple Celtic harp, a Flatsicle from Rees Harps in Indiana, USA.
It is a one-take, live recording using the tiny Zoom H1 recorder. You can even hear my chair squeak! No stopping or edits or studio effects, just raw performance, warts, wrong notes, and all. 😉
The first song is an instrumental, an English traditional song called “Putney Ferry.”
The second song, also just on the harp, is traditional Welsh: “The Queen’s March.”
The third and longest song is “Cruel Sister,” also known as “Two Sisters.” It is an English traditional song. On this one, I play the harp and sing.
I hope you will enjoy this little practice session caught on RECORD!
Me playing the harp last year at Winter War Maneuvers, Marion Co. Fairgrounds, Ohio:
