Music of the 1960’s on the Harp

With a request that came in this week for a wedding that focused on music of the 60’s, I went through some of my books and have added some new pieces to my repertoire.  Sylvia Woods has  relatively new book of harp arrangements from this decade, and they provide a starting point for me to expand upon them and make them my own.  Some of the new pieces include:

  • 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy) by Paul Simon
  • Happy Together by The Turtles
  • Venus in Blue Jeans by Jimmy Clanton
  • Windy by The Association (also on the Drew Carey Show when Craig Ferguson’s character harp-syncs)
  • I Love How You Love Me by The Paris Sisters & Bobby Vinton
  • A Groovy Kind of Love by Phil Collins
  • Puff the Magic Dragon by Peter, Paul and Mary
  • Blowin’ in the Wind by Bob Dylan
  • In My Room by The Beach Boys
  • Downtown by Petula Clark
  • Nights in White Satin by The Moody Blues

Check the Popular & Jazz Repertoire List on my website for other contemporary music that can be played on the harp!
