Puirt Ura (New Tunes for Harp) - Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced books in Scottish style by composer, teacher and performer Fraya Thomsen.
This series of books was written by the current musician in residence at Feis Rois, Fraya Thomsen.
Fraya has her own teaching practice and has worked for a wide variety of musical organisations such as the Edinburgh International Harp Festival and Dinan International Harp Meeting. Some of the tunes were written for workshops she teaches at and for her own pupils as they progressed on the harp.
Delighted to be a part of the Scottish Harp revival, Fraya has drawn on her broad teaching experience to make a collection which has an exciting modern feel whilst promoting good technique and a musical approach.
This is a bilingual book in Gaelic and English and received support from Feisean nan Gaidheal (a network of community-based Gaelic arts tuition festivals and learning opportunities) and Comhairle nan Leabhraichean (The Gaelic Books Council)
