Irish Fiddle Music from Counties Cork and Kerry (Beginning-Intermediate)

by Drew Beisswenger with Connie OConnell

The two southern-most counties in Ireland, Cork and Kerry, have legendary music and dance traditions. On the border of these two counties, a rural area called Sliabh Luachra is especially well-known for its fiddle tunes and itinerant fiddle teachers. When speaking of this areas fiddle music, some describe a special lilt or backbeat, or they talk about the special role of set dances, but the most often-expressed quality relates to the frequent use of slides and polkas. This book features transcriptions of 107 tunes as played by three of the regions most distinguished fiddlers: Padraig OKeeffe, Denis Murphy, and Connie OConnell. Each fiddler is profiled, followed by a collection of meticulously transcribed tunes and annotations. Includes access to online audio of 30 of these tunes played solo by Connie OConnell.
