Séamus Connolly Collection
The licensing for the Séamus Connolly Collection is certainly friendly, so much so that that I downloaded all of the pdf’s and converted them to abc notation:# Added by callison .

Original Compositions from a Master Fiddle Player.# Added by Jeremy .
The Department of Music, University College Cork, is delighted to host this exciting initiative by one of the great masters of Irish traditional music, the fiddle player Connie O’Connell. Connie’s teaching has been at the heart of traditional music studies at University College Cork for nearly forty years and his profile as one of Ireland’s leading fiddle players has brought great honour to the University throughout that time.
Here, Connie shares a collection of over sixty recently composed jigs, reels, hornpipes, slides and polkas, and a few of his older compositions which have become popular. We hope the collection will become a valuable source of new traditional music for musicians and scholars, and that the tunes will give pleasure to many players and listeners for years to come.
Killarney School Of Music
The website of the Killarney School Of Music. Apart from their course offers etc. they provide a free library of tune mp3s for learning (mostly played on the whistle), which is a nice thing… might be of interest for beginners:# Added by sebastian the m3g4p0p .

1001 Best Whistle Tunes
Hi Folks!# Added by MarcusDisessa .
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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!

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.

Zahatar recently held a sold-out performance of the song cycle, and recording an album is our next endeavor.# Added by Christopher Grano .
