Tunes to Go: 400 Tunes 
in Lead Sheet Format for the Harp 

by Cynthia Shelhart

Yes, you can take it with you! Tunes to Go was written especially for harpers and harpists who share their music with others. The 400 tunes (nearly all copyright-free) are appropriate for many public venues, such as playing requests in freelance or therapeutic harp settings. And the lead sheet (or “fake book”) format makes it possible to lighten your load… and carry 400 tunes in 1 book!    

Of course, Tunes to Go is also a great source of new tunes for any harper or harpist to sight-read, play and/or arrange for their own enjoyment. Tunes in C and 1-2 flats or sharps fit the specifications of many lever and pedal harps, and include many "harp favorites." The four detailed indexes are designed for quick and easy tune reference.

Tunes to Go is available in 3 options: as a coil-bound print book, a PDF digital download, or a print book/PDF download combination package.

The 290 pages include: 

  • 170 traditional tunes from Australia, Brittany, England, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Scotland, the United States, and Wales. Includes favorites by Robert Burns and Turlough O'Carolan, as well as 4 original tunes by Cynthia Shelhart.
  • 42 children’s tunes from Canada, England, France, The Netherlands, Puerto Rico, and the United States.
  • 59 Christmas tunes, well-known selections and new favorites, including 2 original seasonal tunes by Cynthia Shelhart.

  • 71 religious tunes from Christian and Jewish worship traditions, including
    African-American spirituals and Shaker tunes.
