Slow Session Book

The Slow Session Book

This was a book compiled by Nigel Gatherer for one of his classes in 2002. Long out of print, it is now offered as a digital download in PDF format. Included are reels, jigs, strathspeys, marches and airs. (One or two of the tunes have later surfaced in other collections.)

There are two versions available to download: the normal version suitable for viewing on your comptuter or tablet, and the "Print Version", which is laid out differently in case you are wishing to print the book. Print the odd pages, turn the sheets over and print the even pages; fold over and staple.
