THE MERSEY RIVER is a mid-intermediate solo arranged for double strung harp. You'll find the dark water of Mersey River and its beautiful trails at Nova Scotia's historic Kejimkujik National Park. This piece works well on 26x2 double strung harps or larger. The sheet music download includes a BONUS version for small double strung harps 22x2.
While waiting for my "real" double strung harp to arrive, I dove into the texture, coordination and visual challenges of playing on two rows of strings. With my Dusty Strings FH36S and my Triplett Christina side by side I started working out my approach to playing the double strung. My strategy was to use simple, repetitive patterns that are easy to memorize so I could limit the number of places I need to look.
