The Fiddler's Throne
Fiddlers from many different musical cultures remain throughout the world and they will enjoy this unique collection of 375 jigs, reels, hornpipes, marches, and waltzes. Selected and edited by fiddler and piano player Randy Miller, the book includes tunes from New England, Ireland, Scotland, Shetland, the north of England, and Cape Breton. Many of the tunes may be played for contra dances. A fifth of the tunes are recently composed by musicians such as Liz Carroll, Jerry Holland, Billy McComiskey, Martin Mulhaire, Randal Bays, Ronnie Jamieson, Brendan Taaffe, Sarah Bauhan, Sean Ryan, George Wilson, Josephine Keegan, and the author, to name a few.
Also included are more than a dozen compositions by the late Ralph Page, dean of New England callers and a fiddler himself, and more than 20 tunes from the hand-written manuscript of New England fiddler John Taggart (1854-1943). This tune book includes composer index, bibliography, discography, chords, and background notes on the tunes. 246 pages, spiral bound.
