Description

The two southern-most counties in Ireland, Cork and Kerry, have legendary music and dance traditions. On the border of these two counties, a rural area called Sliabh Luachra is especially well-known for its fiddle tunes and itinerant fiddle teachers. When speaking of this area's fiddle music, some describe a special lilt or backbeat, or they talk about the special role of set dances, but the most often-expressed quality relates to the frequent use of slides and polkas. This book features transcriptions of 107 tunes as played by three of the region's most distinguished fiddlers.

Songs Include:

  • Anything for John Joe
  • Apples in Winter
  • Art O'Keeffe's
  • As I Went Out Upon the Ice
  • Ballydesmond Polka (1)
  • Ballydesmond Polka (2)
