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.”

Each Tunes for Two collection consists of individual spiral-bound duet books presented in score form with melody on the top line and harmony beneath so you can play each tune by yourself or with others. Duo arrangements of the tunes in this collection, in the same keys, are available for violins, violas, cellos, basses, mandolins, and soprano recorders.

PDFs are available worldwide for each of the books in the Tunes for Two series.

Reviews...


“Greenblatt continues to compile and publish period fiddle tunes from the British Isles in an easy-to-follow format. The book gathers a number of compositions from Scottish fiddler J.S. Skinner (1843 - 1927). The works range from simple melodies like ‘The Flower of the Quern’ to more elaborate arrangements like ‘The Kirrie Kebbuck’ These are songs that, while not immediately familiar today, were popular in Scotland during the early part of the last century. This book contains chord charts for piano or guitar accompaniment. This is an excellent resource for anyone wishing to expand on music repertoire from the UK.”
...Matt Merta, Fiddler Magazine, Fall 2022

“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.”
