For Lever and Pedal Harp
This piece was inspired by a trip to Missoula, MT for a harp conference. A harpist friend and her husband invited Frank to join them on a trip to Coeur d'Alene, ID (in Frank's opinion, it is the Beverly Hills of the Northwest) on one day; and then they drove to Glacier National Park the next day. On the way to the park, they stopped at a souvenir shop for a slice of huckleberry pie. Frank had never tasted a huckleberry - it is the state fruit of ID and only grows in ID and MT. You can hear the grandeur of the mountains (and the deliciousness of huckleberry pie) in this piece - quite a combination! It is in C Minor with easy page turns and one lever or pedal change.ith easy page turns and one lever or pedal change. Lever harps tuned in C Major can play Huckleberry Trail in C# Minor.
One of our FdL Test Team member said: "I like this one! It played nicely and flowed well. Soothing, easy to sight read. I'm not a big fan of the glissandos, but they work in this song."
