A musical merry-go-round of 51 best-known and best-loved traditional songs from around the British Isles. This edition includes a singalong CD of all the piano accompaniments. The book includes guitar chords and suggestions for effective melodic and rhythmic accompaniments. Music reading is required for some of these but wherever possible ideas have been explained without musical notation. The songs are short and repetitive enough for children to learn by heart and each one has some simple historical notes and playalong ideas.
