Arrangements by Gráinne Hambly

Although Gráinne prefers that players learn in the traditional Irish “arual” style, thankfully she’s written some of her arrangements down for those of us who need a little help. Check out her collections and solos, and then head over to her studio at Harp Column Academy to learn more about playing in an Irish style!
