From Apples in Winter to The Wise Maid, this collection of Irish jigs, reels, and polkas provides beginning to advanced players with a wealth of traditional Irish music for solo keyboard accordion. This collection includes a number of tunes transcribed from recordings of not only the keyboard accordion, but also the Irish button box and concertina. Herein too are many of the author's own arrangements. Some of the stellar players whose work appears here are: Jimmy Keane, Phil Cunningham, Alan Kelly, Joe Burke, Jackie Daly, Tom Doherty, Chris Sherburn, Sharon Shannon, and Tony MacMahon. With a basic guide to fingering and rhythm chord symbols included, this book will allow even the novice accordionist to join in a traditional Irish session.

  • March 01, 2009 excellent tune book

    An enjoyable and well-written book with helpful fingering and some challenging tunes thrown in. Not for a beginner. I would highly recommend this book to have fun with and to keep good finger dexterity intact.

  • December 13, 2006 Best book on Irish accordion by far

    This is an excellent book. It has everything an accordion player interested in Irish music wants: plenty of tunes, melody ornaments, interesting but simple bass lines, a cd of examples, chord boxes for jamming with a guitarist. A real gem!
