Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

This book, with companion video, is the second and final volume in the Glengarry Collection of Aonghas Grant's Highland Fiddle repertoire.

The book contains 188 additional slow airs, marches, strathspeys, reels, jigs and hornpipes. Accompanying stories, history and photographs provide additional background to the tunes. This collection focuses on the core of Grant's music - Highland Fiddling, and its connections to pipe tunes and Gaelic songs. Some of these tunes have never been published before, while others are only available in out-of-print books and pipe settings. The collection also includes a number of tunes composed by Grant, and ones composed in his honor. The tunes are fully chorded in a style representative of Grant's band experience.

Transcriptions of his bowings, grace notes and stories provide insight into his playing style. Accompanying photos richly illustrate Grant's music, including images of musicians, family, and scenes from his various careers. Includes access to online video containing recordings of Grant's impromptu and passionate performances, featuring 81 selections.
