The search for a ‘good tune’ is never ending for session players! This collection of favourite tunes has been a long time coming. Over 30 years for David! Samuel’s interest in folk music has been since he could hold a fiddle as a toddler!

These tunes are from all over the world. They’ve come from old records, cassettes, CDs, live gigs, sessions, other tunebooks and the web. We’ve had to transcribe some from scratch and others we’ve tracked down notation.
