Nigel's Notebook 1

Nigel Gatherer's Notebook No.1

For as long as he can remember, Nigel has collected music from many sources, and kept notebooks full of tunes transcribed from other players, records, books and manuscripts. There are currently twenty manuscript books filled with these transcriptions, and Nigel is now making this body of work available to other students of traditional reels, hornpipes, jigs, strathspeys, airs, etc in an easily readable, downloadable PDF format.
