I’ve been studying Irish Music since 2008, and back in that time I created a Personal Tunebook (that I affectionately call it ‘’Tiúineanna’’) and all the tunes that I have learned were added one by one.
Now that I reached O’Neill’s magic number I want to share it with everybody!
It contains modern, traditional tunes and even tunes by members of The Session like Gian Marco, ceolachan, JACKB and others… Most of the tunes you can find in my Tunebook of the Session, unless the tunes I learned by ear and are not in the database.
It may contain some keys misunderstood, mainly with tunes that you don’t play with a D whistle, and all the feedback to make it better is very welcome!
You can download the PDF file here below:
If someone would like the excel file please send me a direct message or an e-mail to email@example.com
It’s a great tool to create new set’s or filter by your favorite composer.. At long last… Infinite possibilities.
I hope it can be useful..
Cheers! All the best!
1001 Best Whistle Tunes
Zahatar: Acoustic String Band’s “The Little Country”album on Kickstarter through July 4th!
We want to have the opportunity to record an album version of The Little Country song cycle, which began as single melody lines in the appendix of one of Charles de Lint’s urban fantasy novels from the early 90’s. These tunes had never before been arranged for string band in their entirety, until now. Zahatar recently held a sold-out performance of the song cycle, and recording an album is our next endeavor.
We love playing Celtic music, and The Little Country is a project that’s very near and dear to us. We want to share this experience with the world!
Please check out our Kickstarter page and consider a pledge - most reward tiers include either a digital copy of the album or a physical copy or both!
A curated collection of high quality videos of Celtic music, broadly construed.

Ryan’s Fancy Documentary: Curraghs, Minstrels, Rocks & Whiskey
Documentary on Newstalk presents a new documentary Produced by Ciaran Ryan, telling the story of Folk Band Ryan’s Fancy.
In‘Curraghs, Rocks, Minstrels and Whiskey’, producer Ciarán Ryan travels to the East Coast of Canada to find out the history of the folk band Ryan’s Fancy who became households names in the 1970’s and early eighties.
Comprising of three Irish immigrants – two from Dublin and one from Tipperary (and also the uncle of the producer) – Ryan’s Fancy played every village and town in Atlantic Canada in a twelve year career that saw the release of twelve albums and numerous television programmes from CBC (the Canadian Broadcasting Corportaion) and other networks. They were equally at home playing in town halls, the infamous Strand Lounge in St John’s, Newfoundland, or larger audtioriums, and their audiences included everyone from students to farmers to prison inmates to even Ronald Reagan!
