Skinner Tunes for Two

This collection features 40 tunes by the great Scottish fiddler/composer/dancing master, J.S. Skinner (August 5, 1843 – March 17, 1927). In his own words: The great work of my life has been composing music for the people of Scotland. The music that reaches and lives in the hearts of the people is the music that they whistle or sing at their daily toil or in their hours of recreation, that the mother croons o’er the cradle, and that accompanies her children, a joyous companion, through life.”

The tunes in each book of the Skinner Tunes for Two series are in the same keys so you can have fun jamming with your musical friends. Chords for back-up musicians included.

Reviews...

“Deborah Greenblatt always produces books that are legible, carefully edited, and stylistically in the pocket. Both parts are similar in level of difficulty, and the tunes in each volume are in the same keys, so instruments can mix and match. Greenblatt’s program notes supply a history of the tunes and performance suggestions.”
