Anyone familiar with it? Thanks. Norm Sams
Yes, "Traditional Slow Airs of Ireland" by Tomas O Canainn, book and two
companion tapes. I'd recommend you get the tapes too, as the timing of the
airs and the representation of that timing in notation are not obvious (at
least to me).
You can find the book and the tapes at the House of Musical Traditions
(800-540-3794, [log in to unmask]).
