Sheila Garry (fiddle) and Brid Cranitch (keyboard).
This cd is one of a series available (also the Orange cd, Green Cd, and Red Cd are available). Each cd is accompanied by a book with the sheet music to the tunes.

Get the Blue and Orange books and CD’s

If you are in the process of learning Irish music as I am, DO NOT WAIT ! Get these books now! They are the best investment you will ever make to help you learn Irish music.

Excellent books on the whole, but there are a handful of tunes that are given wrong titles and they generally could have been proofread a little better. The tune selection is very good - mostly very common (but avoiding the most overplayed) tunes, together with some lesser-known ones.

Guitar chords

are the guitar chords included in the sheet music?
