Herbert Hughes was an Irish born music critic, composer and an active participant in the Irish Cultural Revival. An avid supporter of folk music, he helped to found the Irish Folksong Society and became known for his collections and arrangements.
This is fabulous edition that contains the best-loved of Hughes' classic settings of traditional Irish melodies, featuring delightful piano accompaniments and a vocal melody line and lyrics.
This is a typically varied and interesting collection of beautiful and evocative polkas, jigs reels and shanties. Set for Voice and Piano, these will entertain and amuse audiences and are certainly a pleasure to play.
