Summary

Summary

Matt Cunningham is internationally recognized as one of Ireland's finest exponents of Irish traditional music today. His recordings, The Dance Music of Ireland series, are an extensive and invaluable resource for dancers. This book offers the reader the chance to become more intimate with the dance tunes. No less than 298 Irish dance tunes have been transcribed exactly from the recordings and have had chords added so that an accompanist can easily join in with the melody player. Reels, jigs, polkas, hornpipes, marches and waltzes all abound here.
