The “blue book” in this series contains over 100 Irish dance tunes and airs, selected and arranged into sets by Brid Cranitch. This collection contains a varied selection of widely played and lesser-known tunes, divided into different dance rhythms: double jigs, slides, slip jigs, polkas, reels, hornpipes, set dances and airs. In turn, these have been sorted into sets of similar tunes to be played at Irish sessions. The range of the tunes are particularly suitable for the fiddle, but can be used on other instruments. Includes: Silver Spear • Shetland Reel • Rose in the Heather • Fasten the Leg in Her • Cooley's • Wise Maid • Lucky Penny • Old Pigeon in the Gate • Wind That Shakes the Barley • Kiss Me Kate • No Name • Free and Easy • and many more favorites and rarities.
