FOR THE CURIOUS CELLIST

TRADITIONAL FIDDLE TUNES (IRISH, BRITISH, AMERICAN)

Here are a selection of wonderful fiddle tunes with various origins and pedigrees: some are undoubtedly Irish, others from the USA, but all are in the same fiddler’s style. They are offered here in different instrumental combinations: cello with violin, two cellos, and cello with any chordal accompaniment.
