“A lovely collection”

Beth Penny Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

This is a wonderful array of popular traditional tunes, perfect to bring along to a session. The presentation is excellent, with the tunes being helpfully categorized. They are in a range of keys and are notated very clearly, complete with chord symbols. The provided music can be embellished according to ability, so this book is appropriate for both beginners and advanced players.

From the Publisher

102 Session Tunes is the second book in this series. Its aim is to be a resource to help further develop the repertoire of any traditional musician keen to play along in sessions. Whether beginner, intermediate or advanced, it caters for all abilities.

Where the last book (101 Session tunes) focused solely on Jigs and Reels, this edition includes a full range of tune styles including Hornpipes, Barndances, Polkas, Slides, Waltzes and slow tunes. But of course, lots more Jigs and Reels too!!! Offering musicians a more varied range of styles to bring to their local sessions.

Written by husband and wife duo Ali & Philippe Barnes, all the tunes in this book are traditional. It includes many of the popular ones the couple play in session across London, but also lots from further afield too.

This book is ideal if you've used and loved the first book and would like more tunes to be working through, or equally if you're new to the series and would just like a comprehensive collection of popular session tunes. We hope you enjoy!
