Danny Boy (Mid-Intermediate) Course
This arrangement sounds classic and everyone will recognise it, but it also has some wonderful interest for intermediate players: 7th chords which give a slightly jazzy harmony and a few unexpected notes that perk up your ears. It’s great for intermediate harpists and advanced harpists who have limited time, because it sits well under the fingers and feels relatively easy to play, but sounds lush and interesting.
