From the Publisher

This book is a major collection of traditional Irish Slow airs that captures the essence and beauty of Irish traditional music. Included in the 118 airs that make up this fabulous compilation, are some of the great sean-n's (old style) airs as well as tunes by Caloran and other favourite and well known pieces. Author Tomas O'Canainn had a lifetime of experience both performing and teaching Irish music and his selection of beautiful, soaring and majestic Slow Airs is ideal for extending your repertoire for any melody instrument. These relatively easy pieces are also suitable for those approaching Irish Slow Airs for the first time.

2 CDs accompany this book containing every tune in the book played by Canainn and an ensemble of expert traditional musicians so you can hear how the pieces should sound.
