Re: The Celtic Fiddler

3 further Scottish tracks :- Scotland the Brave (51), Speed the Plough (53) and Gin ye Kiss my Wife + 52, 54 and 56 (backing tracks). Not allowed more than 50 tracks for cds.

This is the accompanying cd to Edward Huws Jones’ book "THE CELTIC FIDDLER" published by Boosey and Hawkes in a new edition, 2012. The musicians are not credited, though they play very well. It’s a book for learner fiddlers, with the backing tracks playable as "slow harmony versions" of each tune. Or you can play the tunes to the backing tracks. A good listen apart from the "play along" usefulness.

I’d recommend this book - though I can’t play fast enough to keep up with most of the tunes. After much work, I can almost keep up with "The Rocky Road to Dublin"!

Re: The Celtic Fiddler

Susan, I’ve removed all the backing tracks so that the recording can fit neatly into one page. I hope that’s OK.
