  • January 14, 2010 Worth the price but it's a booklet not a book

    Great CD, useful and fun. The slow speed is slow enough that you can keep up. The fast speed is real-life fast. The booklet is 4.5 x 7 inches, so if you are of a certain age, be warned that the music is awfully small. These are good tunes...

    that you will actually play once you find some old-timey friends out there. If you like this, also check out Renata Bratt's Celtic Grooves.
