Stephanie Bennett, Harpist
Celtic music song list


Stephanie with Celtic Harp

NOTE: many of the livelier selections (especially the fast jigs etc.) sound better with an ENSEMBLE, for example with a flute/whistle player and a cellist & maybe percussionist, in addition to harp. The mellower songs sound fine with either harp alone or harp with additional instruments.  

Click on the underlined selections to hear them.

The songs marked with a heart would be the most appropriate for a Celtic-themed wedding
