Product Description

Irish Fiddle Music Composed by Padraig O'Keeffe. Arranged by Beisswenger/O'Connel. For Violin. Published by Mel Bay Publications Inc. (Catalog # 22051BCD, UPC: 9780786683758)

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 is especially well-known for its fiddle tunes and itinerant fiddle teachers. When speaking of this area s fiddle music, some describe a special lilt or backbeat, or they talk about the special role of set dances, but the most often expressed quality relates to the frequent use of slides and polkas. This book features transcriptions of 107 tunes as played by three of the region s most distinguished fiddlers: P draig O'Keeffe, Denis Murphy, and Connie O'Connell. Each fiddler is profiled, followed by a collection of meticulously transcribed tunes and annotations. An accompanying CD includes 30 of these tunes played solo by Connie O Connell.
