This book is part of a series collectively entitled Music of Ireland which brings together a rich repository of solid tunes from the many sessions of Irish music held throughout the British Isles. It’s not a definitive collection, nor does it intend to compete with other publications–although naturally some tunes will be found elsewhere. But you’ll agree that it’s rare indeed that two written, recorded or inherited versions are identical. Many alternative titles are given in the index. Some of the tunes are difficult, while many are not. Some are established, some elusive; some sound powerful on the pipes, others sit squarely on the squeezebox. All are worth investigation. Appropriate for any melody instrument. Chord symbols are included.
