Paul Coles has a chequered career as composer, performer, teacher and publisher, all centred around his instrument, the guitar. His latest work, “Dagda’s Harp”, is influenced by the story of Dagda, the Celtic god of the Earth and evokes the unmistakable sounds of Irish folk music.
Dagda possessed a magic harp, on which he is supposed to have played magical sounds, including music of dreaming, music of sorrow and music of joy.
These three states are represented in a suite of pieces that will be suitable for intermediate players, as either teaching or concert material.


  • The Music of Dreaming
  • The Music of Sorrow
  • The Music of Joy


Paul Coles has a reputation for reliable guitar music. Here he provides three charming character pieces.
