Im a little confused as to what this actually is as I’m aware of the book by this title, but was not aware of any CD. Is this some nonsense entry?

There isn’t a cd, just the novel. These are the tunes mentioned in the novel, with links to most of them here on The Session. I forgot to put something in the comments section explaining it. I put the "playlist" in the cd section because there isn’t a fiction section here. It’s sort of like the practice of listing airs and marches as polkas or waltzes because there is no category for air or march here.

At one point, one of the Scottish fairies drags off Dinnie, "… an overweight enemy of humanity … the worst violinist in New York", to an Irish session because "No one plays Scottish music in New York. Only Irish." Of Dinnie’s playing: "No one in the audience had ever heard such bad playing in public." The other players at the session were polite, but very, very quiet. Deathly quiet.

I’ve also listed the tunes from another novel, The Little Country by Charles de Lint.

ah, the liberties of fiction.
