Performance Video: Planxty Drew for Double-Strung Harp (Turlough O’Carolan, arr. Shelhart)

Irish harper and composer Turlough O’Carolan (1670-1738) probably composed this tune for a unknown member of the County Meath-based Drew family. This arrangement is definitely more modern-sounding than O’Carolan’s original!

Filmed at my home studio and posted to YouTube in March 2024.

PS: Want to play it yourself? You can find this O’Carolan arrangement (along with 12 others) in my book Double the O’Carolan Tunes, book 2 in The Double Dozen series (PDF, or PDF/print book package):
