30 Tunes for Irish Fiddle Volume 6


In this ’30 Tunes for Irish Fiddle volume 6′ are a mix of different tune types and music to add to you repetoire of Irish fiddle tunes. Some of these are well known because of their prominence on recordings. Also included is one of my favourite jigs, ‘Queen of the Fair’, made popular by the accordion legend Joe Cooley from Peterswell in Co.Galway. The ‘Frog in the Well ‘was recorded by Michael Coleman. ‘Rosie Finn’s’ was recorded by the Bothy Band. It has a high ‘c’ in the second part. Most fiddlers will move the hand up a little to play it rather shifting position e.g. 1 finger to 3rd on the E string, 3rd position as a classically trained player might. Some adroit players can reach the ‘high c’ just by stretching, a skill in itself! ‘Quinn of Armagh’ is a lovely hornpipe recorded by Paddy Glackin on ‘Reprise’ with  Mícheál Ó Domhnaill. ‘Sweet Biddy Daly’ is also played by Glackin (solo)on ‘The Whirlwind’, an album with Robbie Hannan.
