leon-00160077recommended by Barb M., Keyboard and Folk Music Specialist

Getting ready for Saint Patrick’s Day?  Stanton’s has a new book for banjo, Celtic Bluegrass. Many of the Scottish-Irish folksongs and tunes were retained in the Appalachian mountains, and this collection of tunes for 5-string banjo includes “Devil’s Dream,” “Soldier’s Joy,” and “Fisher’s Hornpipe,” among others. This book includes Audio Access – when you use the code that comes with the book, you will find recordings for each tune, and listen or play along!

A fun collection for lever harp players is 50 Irish Melodies For All Harps, arranged by Sylvia Woods. Each tune has an easy arrangement and an intermediate arrangement – with 52 tunes to play, you have lots and lots of choices! Contents include “Danny Boy,” “The Gartan Mother’s Lullaby,” “Killarney,” “My Wild Irish Rose,” “The Rakes of Mallow,” and more.
