Scottish Folk Tunes

Books and CDs | Accordion

Publisher: Schott Music
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

This book is a mixture of traditional and contemporary tunes from the Scottish accordionists' repertoire. It explores the common tune types played in Scotland, i.e. the Jig, reel, strathspey, slow air, waltz, march and polka. Some tunes are arranged in a traditional, dance music style where others have been set with a more contemporary feel as used by the author and many of the ‘new age’ of Scottish accordionists. Strong emphasis has been placed on the use of the left hand to enhance the style and arrangement. Ian Lowthian was brought up steeped in the Scottish accordion tradition; he is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music who, since leaving, has concentrated mainly in traditional music as a performer, teacher and composer.
