Not an instrument one would expect to hear in a dance band but I scratched my head when I heard this song. The harp is very brief and can be heard at the beginning and the end of this Al Benny record.


Blue Hills Of Pasadena (1929)

A harp figures quite prominently in this lovely Jack Denny arrangement of Bells of St. Marys from 1927, both as a very effective introduction and played intermittently throughout the piece:

Bells of St. Marys

Eddie the Collector

1930s rather than 1920s, perhaps you will already know Mario "Harp" Lorenzi?

Here and here for instance.

Thanks. I also remember the song Marcheta being played with a harp, though I can't remember the band.
