The 38 tunes in this collection are arranged for two players and are organized in the order of the festivities at a traditional wedding. This comes in handy when selecting songs with the bride-to-be, and when it’s time to play. Helpful hints to help ease your way are scattered throughout the book. This book has the same tunes in the same keys as the Wedding Fiddling Tunes for Two series which includes books for violins, violas, cellos, basses, and mandolins. For instance a soprano recorder player and a violist could play a wedding together if each had the appropriate book.

The Wedding Fiddling Tunes for Two CD features Deborah Greenblatt performing all of the tunes in the Wedding Fiddling Tunes for Two series books on violin. The melody part comes out of one stereo speaker and the harmony part comes out of the other speaker. By adjusting your stereo’s balance control you can isolate either part so you can play the other part along with it.
