Irish Traditional Fiddle Music - Miller & Perron
IRISH TRADITIONAL FIDDLE MUSIC
by Randy Miller and Jack Perron
Second Edition by Randy Miller
"Frankly, it's the best Irish tune collection issued for many a long year." --Geoff Wallis*
New and expanded edition, released on St. Patrick's Day 2006, of the landmark collection of Irish fiddle tunes first published in 1977. ITFM has helped introduce several generations of American musicians to the beauty and delights of Irish fiddle tunes.
Contains clear and faithful settings of 235 jigs, reels, hornpipes, polkas, slip jigs, and airs. 18 polkas have been added to the collection, as well as chords, a discography, bibliography, and extensive notes on tunes and sources. The cover and inside illustrations are from a wood engraving by Randy Miller.
The transcriptions are true to the personal and regional characteristics of fiddlers such as Andy McGann, Julia Clifford, Bobby Casey, Paddy Canny, Martin Wynne, Sean McGuire, Mairtin Byrnes, Sean Ryan, Michael Coleman, Paddy Cronin, and others. ITFM remains a unique and meticulously edited collection of great Irish fiddle music.
