These 300 tunes, selected from among the author’s favorites, are notated in a style that makes them equally accessible to players of fiddle, flute, whistle, accordion, concertina, harp, keyboard, guitar, mandolin, banjo, uilleann pipes – to all melody players.

In this book you’ll find:

  • 300 jigs, reels, hornpipes, slip jigs, polkas, slides and other types of Irish tunes.
  • Irish session favorites.
  • Lesser-known tunes to broaden your repertoire.
  • Introductory material on notation and modes

The author designed the sequence of jigs, reels and hornpipes such that good medleys result when you play consecutive tunes one after another. We’re not aware of tune collections by other authors that offer such medley suggestions.

Audio of all 300 tunes is available separately, either as a set of 4 CDs or as a downloadable set of 300 MMP3s. Grey Larsen plays them on Irish flute, tin whistles and anglo concertina. The set of 4 CDs is on sale for only $4.99, now through 1.6.19.

Please note: 251 of these 300 recordings are identical to ones that are included on the CDs that come with the books 150 Gems of Irish Music for Tin Whistle and 150 Gems of Irish Music for Flute. If you already have these books and their companion CDs and wish to purchase only the 49 recordings that are not included on those CDs, you may purchase these as a downloadable set of 49 MP3s.

Many of the transcriptions pay homage to recordings by famous Irish musicians and groups such as Matt Molloy (of the Chieftains), Martin Hayes, Sharon Shannon, Mary Bergin, Kevin Burke, James Kelly, Willie Clancy, Altan, the Bothy Band and the Mulcahy Family, as well as early 20th century recordings from revered Irish masters Michael Coleman, Paddy Killoran, Dennis Murphy, Bobby Casey, Paddy Canny and others.
