A lively and wide-ranging collection of great tunes from all around England, suitable for playing on piano accordion, melodeon and other squeezeboxes! Included are many well-established favourites for dance bands and informal sessions, plus some lesser-known gems and recent compositions. Reels, jigs, hornpipes and slow airs drawn from the 17th Century to the present day, with chord suggestions, background information on the tunes and detailed guidance on how to get the best out of this vibrant music.
A good mix of tunes for arranged for accordion. These arrangements could also be used for a melody instrument with guitar or similar accompaniment. (I plan to use them for concertina and mandolin.) A useful addition to the folk music library. Anonymous

A splendid collection of Modern English folk tunes for accordeons (including melodeons, with a CD too). I am a big fan of this book and I congratulate the editor David Oliver and Schott Music publishers. Anonymous
