In this book you'll find the holy grail of pub session tunes, the very backbone and life blood of the English traditional music scene. You'll observe that many of the tunes aren't exactly English but within these pages you'll find the repertoire that crops time and time again. A sizable proportion of the tunes have been made popular by The Old Swan Band.

The tunes are suitable for every instrument associated with traditional music and only 14 notes are required to play them all. They are eminently suitable for playing at country dances, ceilidhs, barn dances and hoe-downs and most have been recorded by notable bands and personalities.
