Favorites from the ’50s


Sylvia Woods’ latest book takes harpists through the songs of a generation

“Find a poodle skirt and start the year off by playing the music of the ’50s.”

Depending on your generation, Sylvia Woods’ new book, Favorites from the Fifties, could be a stroll down memory lane or a history lesson of post WWII pop music. She has sorted the 40 selections into seven categories. Seven of the pieces are presented twice in order to accommodate lever harps tuned to C or E-flat. Two others are presented twice because they offer multiple levels of difficulty.
