The two southern most counties in Ireland, Cork and Kerry, have legendary music and dance traditions. On the border of these two counties, a rural area called Sliabh Luachra isespecially well-known for its fiddle tunes and itinerant fiddle teachers. When speaking of this area's fiddlemusic, some describe a special lilt or backbeat, or they talk about the special role of set dances, but the mostoften expressed quality relates to the frequent use of slides and polkas. Thisbook features transcriptions of 107 tunes as played by three of the region's most distinguished fiddlers: Padraig O'Keeffe, Denis Murphy, andConnie O'Connell. Each fiddler is profiled, followed by a collection of meticulously transcribed tunes and annotations. Book only - audio tracks not included.
