about

The first of a three-volume series, The Scots Fiddle --Tunes, Tales &; Traditions. This work combines an extensive and fascinating collection of traditional fiddle music (over 160 tunes) relating to the North-East and Central Highlands together with extensive background narratives and anecdotes on the history, legends and traditions associated with the music; biographical sketches on composers and song-writers and instruction on playing through the provision of bowings and finger-board positions. The book is also illustrated throughout with fine steel engravings. This is not just a music book; it is a book about Scotland with appeal to all interested in her and her cultural traditions. It includes slow airs, pastorals, strathspeys, reels, jigs, hornpipes and marches, some hidden gems from the 18th and 19th-century collections as well as new and previously unpublished compositions.
