These sixteen original compostions and arrangements are lovely. The limited key and note ranges makes them readily accessible, and as there's a great mix of songs and dances it's easy to perform just a selection. This is a winning combination of flute and guitar and excellent music!


From the Publisher

The delightful sound of flute and guitar finds Paul Coles inspired both as arranger and composer. In “Gaelic and British Melodies”, he has explored some of the most popular pieces from these traditions as well as providing ten of his own compositions in the same styles. These will be ideal for school or folk club performances or simply for the sheer pleasure of playing together with a friend. They are suitable for intermediate players.

Difficulty guide: 6-7
