Books and CDs | Violin

Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

This 2014 edition of Edward Huws Jones' popular series of traditional Fiddle repertoire now comes with an expertly-recorded audio CD. Containing colourful instrumental backing tracks and full demonstrations, this expanded resource will aid and inspire your private practice and public performance alike.

Jigs, Reels & Hornpipes contains a generous collection of authentic music, some familiar, some more exotic, but all of it faithfully arranged to enable you to create your own ceilidh, bluegrass club or charanga band.

This edition for the Violin includes an optional easy Violin part and Guitar chords, whilst the complete edition also includes both Keyboard and Violin accompaniments. Either format is highly flexible, which means the music can be played as solos, duets or trios as well as with larger ensembles.

Edwards Huws Jones has travelled extensively researching Fiddle-playing traditions. In each book he explains the background of the particular musical style, giving his own suggestions for a lively performance.
