Six memorable Stephen Foster melodies. True to the 1800’s minstrel show tradition, this expressive arrangement holds the listener’s attention by utilizing tempo and dynamic changes, breaks for breaths and effect, glissandos, harmonics, knocking, chromatic notes and key changes. It’s a real showstopper! Performance time is seven minutes. Includes score, harp 1 and harp 2 booklets. There is a brief biography of Foster on page one of the score.  

The songs in the medley are:
Camptown Races (1850),
Some Folks(1855),
Beautiful Dreamer(1862),
Nelly Bly(1850),
Jeannie with the Light Brown Hair(1854),
Oh! Susanna(1848). 
 
A significant amount of lever changes, more in harp 1 than harp 2. I would consider this upper intermediate lever harp because of the accidentals.  Very worthwhile to perform, despite the work the left hand has to do! INTERMEDIATE TO UPPER INTERMEDIATE, ALL HARPS.
