Ozarks Fiddle Music Book/CD Set This book, which includes 308 tune transcriptions, is organized around individual fiddlers who typically combine Appalachian-style fiddling with rags, pop standards, Midwest-style fiddling and sometimes a touch of Western swing to create a style often identifiable as Ozarks. Thirty Ozarks fiddlers and their lives are highlighted with biographical sketches, photographs, and tune histories. Another 50 great Ozarks fiddlers are presented in a similar manner but with less detail. The book and accompanying CD (with 37 tunes, many recorded in the field) emphasize the older fiddling traditions connected to the square dances and community events more than those connected to bluegrass music and modern contest fiddling. Some of the tunes in the collection are old standbys such as "Bile Them Cabbage" while others such as "Finley Creek Blues" are unique to the region. The book is the result of years of work by two respected researchers. Gordon McCann won the prestigious Missouri Arts Award in 2002 for his decades of work documenting, studying, and accompanying Ozarks fiddle music. Drew Beisswenger, a music librarian at Missouri State University with a Ph.D. in ethnomusicology, has published three other works about fiddle music and is known for his strong transcription and analysis skills. 21123BCD   $29.99

50 Irish Fiddle Tunes Book/CD Pack Fifty choice tunes, as arranged and played by one of the all-time greats of Irish traditional fiddling, Tommy Peoples.

Tommy Peoples was born in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal, and grew up in Killycally, St. Johnston, Co. Donegal. He learned partly from his father but started lessons with his cousin Joe Cassidy at the age of seven. Peoples developed his own techniques of bowing from early in his playing career and is one of the most inventive and imaginative of traditional fiddlers. A move to Dublin led to his involvement in the foundation of The Green Linnet CéilI Band and, in 1974, to a brief spell with the group 1691. Soon after, he joined the legendary Bothy Band, with which he recorded an album in 1975. In the late 1970s he played for a time with the Kilfenora Céili Band but was always happier in small sessions rather than stage performances. One of the most memorable traditional albums of this period is Matt Molloy, Paid Brady, Tommy Peoples (1978), notable for the great passion and energy of all three players' performances. Peoples has released a number of solo albums, including The High Part of the Road (1979), on which he was accompanied by Paul Brady. Throughout the 1980s and '90s he played small sessions, many of them around Co. Clare. The Quiet Glen/An Gleann Giiiin was released in 1998, with Aiph Duggan on guitar, and has strengthened Peoples' standing as one of the all-time greats of Irish traditional fiddling. 634236   $39.95

English Fiddle Book/CD Set Every country in Europe seems to have rediscovered its own vital tradition of fiddle music, except England ... But, English fiddle music forms an important, yet neglected, part of the mosaic of Old and New World fiddle styles. Chris Bartram has played this music for over forty years. He has learned from traditional musicians around his home communities and more widely in other parts of England and in Cornwall. He has studied the majority of the existing field recordings of older generations of players and many of the handwritten manuscripts of nineteenth century fiddlers. 'English Fiddling' contains a wide variety of traditional tunes, an essay about the history of the instrument in England and a number of archive photographs. 'English Fiddling' is intended to be a source for people who can already play the fiddle - or violin - at some level. This is not a book for the complete beginner, although a player who can play simple tunes in the first position and who can read music a little will find it helpful and instructive. The companion CD contains a selection of tunes played by Chris and some of his friends. • A unique insight into the neglected fiddle music of England. • Nearly one hundred tunes • Historical essay and illustrations • Technique and repertoire • Companion CD 98552BCD   $22.99

Scottish Fire The fiddle has been popular in Scotland for over 500 years as an accompanying instrument for dance and song. Bonnie Rideout has been playing traditional Scottish fiddle music since the 1980s. This collection presents favorite tunes which Bonnie had stashed away over the years while awaiting the perfect opportunity to record them. The music written here ranges from J. Scott Skinner's Dr. Gordon Stable (a wonderful fiery reel she once played to garner her first national fiddling title as a young teenager), to Fear A Bhata (a heartbreaking air she has known as long as she can remember). These Scottish fiddle selections have been carefully transcribed from Bonnie's recording Scottish Fire. It would be impossible to write down all her bowings and every grace note, especially since they are not always consistent from one playing to the next. Readers should use this book as a basis for exploring their own voice within the music. 99253   $14.95

The American Fiddle Method Vol. 1 Piano Accompaniment Private studio teachers, school string programs and Suzuki teachers preparing for recitals will welcome these tasteful piano accompaniments for the violin, viola and cello editions of Volume 1of Brian Wicklund’s American Fiddle Method. Acknowledged as the most widely used fiddle method in the country, Wicklund became aware of the increasing demand for a parallel piano accompaniment series and engaged his friend Bob Walser to take on the task of writing it. Collaborating closely with Wicklund, Walser was encouraged to adhere to the chord progressions suggested in the original books, but given leeway to add interesting variations in rhythm and harmony. The result is a book of arrangements that welcomes pianists to the jamming circle. Piano playing teachers, parents and siblings can now join in the fun, and fiddle tunes can be featured in concerts and recitals with the support of an accompanist. In addition, principals of accompaniment learned by playing these arrangements can be applied to accompanying other tunes, the voice or other instruments. The American Fiddle Method itself provides the beginner with the elements needed to become a proficient fiddler. Based on many years of teaching experience, the author introduces concepts and techniques that yield solid results. This method encourages creativity in the student by including variations of the tunes to illustrate how they can serve as a basis for improvisation. 99471PA   $19.95

The American Fiddle Method Vol. 2 Piano Accompaniment Private studio teachers, school string programs and Suzuki teachers preparing for recitals will welcome these tasteful piano accompaniments for the violin, viola and cello editions of Volume 2 of Brian Wicklund’s American Fiddle Method. Acknowledged as the most widely used fiddle method in the country, Wicklund became aware of the increasing demand for a parallel piano accompaniment series and engaged his friend Bob Walser to take on the task of writing it. Collaborating closely with Wicklund, Walser was encouraged to adhere to the chord progressions suggested in the original books, but given leeway to add interesting variations in rhythm and harmony. The result is a book of arrangements that welcomes pianists to the jamming circle. Piano playing teachers, parents and siblings can now join in the fun, and fiddle tunes can be featured in concerts and recitals with the support of an accompanist. In addition, principals of accompaniment learned by playing these arrangements can be applied to accompanying other tunes, the voice or other instruments. The American Fiddle Method itself provides the beginner with the elements needed to become a proficient fiddler. Based on many years of teaching experience, the author introduces concepts and techniques that yield solid results. This method encourages creativity in the student by including variations of the tunes to illustrate how they can serve as a basis for improvisation. 99472PA   $19.95

Barrage, Volume 1 Book/CD Set Barrage is a hot young touring group of seven violinists, one percussionist, one kit player, guitarist, bass and keyboard players, performing a mix of original world beat music by Dean Marshall, with infectious and irresistible energy. Barrage combines jazz, swing, Celtic roots, rock, klezmer, country, calypso and every musical style in between to create an eclectic and electrifying assault on the senses. After hundreds of requests for the music of Barrage, this volume of sheet music has finally been produced. The texture of the music has been simplified from the group's seven parts down to 1 to 3 violin parts, with various markings included (bar numbers, fingerings, and bowings) which can be useful in group situations. In terms of difficulty, these arrangements are definitely written for the more intermediate to advanced player. The companion Enhanced CD has two exciting applications: You can print the piano/guitar accompaniment sheet music from your computer, and you can insert the same CD in your stereo for play along with the pre-recorded piano accompaniment tracks!
