The Travel Journal of a Western Harpist in the Chinese Garden: Book 1 STICKNEY, P.


“While preparing for a solo tour of China and Korea in March 2016, I was inspired to write my first book of arrangements.  Finally!  Tadaa!

Here are five folk songs from China and Taiwan, arranged in a jazz style…

Each includes a notated “improvised” section.  The book is intended for pedal harp, although all but “Jasmine Flower” can be played by adventurous lever-players.  The level is mixed, from easy (Purple Bamboo Melody) to slightly complex (Jasmine Flower, Kangding Love Song), but in general is for medium-advanced players…” P.
