Practical Ap Huw: Welsh harp music
Instructor's Kingdom: Atlantia, Time Zone: EST
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
An introduction to the ap Huw manuscript, which contains rare late medieval Welsh harp music in a unique tablature. What lessons does it hold for SCA harpers? Learn about the "melodic gestures" and the 24 measures, building blocks you can use for period-style improvisation. You'll also be able to work through the manuscript on your own to "decode" the music. Feel free to bring a harp but you can attend without one.
