I didn't (and don't) have a harp, but I do have a Bulgarian tambura (country cousin of the bouzouki), so I did my composing on that, to get at least a bit closer to the sound of the harp.  But I'm fairly incompetent on the tambura, and I think the tune also fits well on the concertina (my English concertina, at least), so that's how I've recorded it here... for concertina.net, after all.  :)


Glad you did! Nice tune with a definite O'Carolanish feel.
