Traditional Music
During the 1970s Dave Bulmer and Neil Sharpley published a series of four books of Irish traditional music called Music From Ireland. Most of the tunes were collected from sessions and contemporary players, so the settings are pretty close to what is played today.

These pages list the tunes found in Music From Ireland along with alternative titles, background histories of the tunes and some different settings in ABC notation format.

I'm always interested in hearing more about these tunes, and if anyone has anything new to add, or has any other constructive criticism, email me and I'll be pleased to hear from you. Last updated: 21st June 2002.
