Irish Session Tunes - The Orange Book edited by Brid Cranitch. For Fiddle. Music Sales America. Irish, Traditional, Folk, Celtic. Book only. 48 pages. Music Sales #OMB153. Published by Music Sales (HL.14016241).
The fourth book in this series, the “orange book” contains more than one hundred Irish dance tunes and airs. It contains a varied selection of widely played and lesser known tunes, divided into different dance rhythms but predominantly reels to reflect that this is the fourth book in the series and is a slightly higher difficulty. These tunes have been sorted, along with similar songs, into sets to be played at Irish sessions. The range of the tunes is particularly suitable for the fiddle, but can be used on other instruments. Includes 100 jigs, reels, polkas and hornpipes, such as: Over the Moor • Johnny Leary's • Liffey Banks • Far from Home • Boys of Bluehill • Green Gates • Dublin Porter • Lilies of the Field • Ships Are Sailing • Lucy Campbell's • Maids on the Green • The Mist Covered Mountain • and more.
