Irish Session Tune Book

Irish Session Tune Book


Price: £13.95

Quantity:

This book is the ideal primer for anyone wishing to participate in an "Irish session". This musical gathering is apparently quite different than a blues, jazz or bluegrass jam session in that it is customary at Irish sessions to play in tight unison with the other musicians, adapting appropriate tempos, rhythms, and ornaments in an attempt to fit in with the "groove". The Irish Session Tune Book features 300 reels, hornpipes, polkas, slides, and slip-jigs written without chord symbols for the melody instruments commonly played in Irish Sessions. The author shares a wealth of melodies collected over the past 10 years, the majority learned by ear at Irish sessions: fiddle, accordion, tinwhistle, tenor banjo, mandolin, bouzouki, etc. Authentic ornamentation is suggested for each tune with the admonition that ornamentation may vary from region to region and chorus to chorus.

Reels and Rants, Flings and Fancies

Reels and Rants, Flings and Fancies


Price: £2.95

Quantity:

By Peter Kennedy (Peter Kennedy) - Just as the original Fiddler's Tune-Book provided an extremely broad base of adaptable tunes for many musicians, this collection provides a further 200 melodies with chord symbols all in cut time from England, Ireland, and Scotland. It is noteworthy that many of these tunes are unavailable elsewhere; most have been collected and notated directly from traditional musicians. Hopefully, they will go at least some of the way to satisfying the healthy and seemingly endless thirst for the traditional music of Britain and Ireland. Needless to say, despite the title, these tunes are for all musicians, not just fiddlers.

Slip Jigs and Waltzes

Slip Jigs and Waltzes


Price: £2.95

Quantity:

Another entry of 200 tunes in the Fiddler's Tune-Book series, this book comes in response to the re-discovery of the much neglected triple-time jig and waltz rhythms once widely used for all kinds of traditional dancing in Britain and Ireland. Before the end of the nineteenth century this triple rhythm was used for long sets, contra dances and square sets. Both jigs and waltzes were used for these community formation dances, but of course, the waltz itself swept the fashionable ballrooms as a 'round dance' for individual couples.

The Big Session...

The Big Session...


Price: £2.95

Quantity:

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.

Published by the Hardie Press, Edinburgh.

"Tom - Tammy as Shetland knew him - was unique in his field: fiddler, composer, collector, teacher, saver of tradition. It's safe to say nobody else came anywhere near matching his activities and achievements, and those proved to be a dominant influence on the Shetland musical scene after 1945. Tammy laid the foundations upon which the current success of Shetland's music is built, and which produced for our community a worldwide reputation for its thriving musical tradition, second to none."
