  • Manx Traditional Music for Sessions

    60 tunes from the Isle of Man, by dance time and in sets.

    The book also has a written section (49 A4 pages) that puts Manx traditional music into context, giving a brief history of traditional music and dance in the Island; its decline and revival; links between Manx and neighbouring traditions; a discussion on what makes music ‘traditional’; Manx tune names; playing in sessions; modal scales and set building, and so on.

    The author has been playing traditional music for over 30 years and been closely involved with Manx music for most of that time.

    The collection includes many tunes you will not have heard, some nice variations of Irish and other tunes plus a few popular compositions.

    Available from Nigel Gatherer’s site (follow the link).
