Reviews...

“The Celtic Fiddler’s Songbooks are arranged so that you can play with a friend on any instrument; violin, viola, cello, bass or mandolin. Celtic poems feature alongside each tune, including those by Robert Burns, Walter Scott and Thomas Moore, giving added incentive to both play and sing these sweet refrains. The ever-adventurous Deborah Greenblatt conjures the heyday of the dance-master’s kit fiddle in these charming, evocative yet eminently practical arrangements.”
