The Celtic/folk/lever/lap harp is sweet, simple, portable, affordable, and our closest link to the historical harps that were centeral to ancient Celtic cultures. Yet, finding sheet music that fits its limited range and keys can be very challenging. So I have chosen and arranged my favorite traditional Celtic tunes and transcribed them for you to enjoy! All have minimal lever changes (only F# or C#), are only in the keys of C, D, or G, and are within the 30-string range of most small lever harps. For C-scale harps I have music ranging from C3 (1 octave below middle C) to C7 (3 octaves above middle C), and for G-scale harps, the same music is available from G2 (1.4 octaves below middle C) to A6 (2.7 octaves above middle C).
The chart below shows the title, key, levers, number of strings, range, and number of pages of each song so you can know if it fits your harp. The top option is best for C-scale harps and the bottom option is best for G-scale harps. To view the first page of each arrangement, click on the appropriate key in that column, and to listen to the full arrangement in MIDI, click on the appropriate key in that column. Once you have chosen the songs you want, you are ready to purchase! (See below for details.)
