Book/CD pack. In an Irish session, tunes are played in sets and unless you know how to get from one tune to the next you'll crash! Based on the many sessions he's played in or listened to, Brid Cranitch has selected 100 tunes in 40 sets of 2, 3 or 4 tunes so that you can learn the tunes and work on transitions. "Wandering Minstrel/Fasten the Leg in Her," "Trip to Durrow/The Ships are Sailing," "Blacksmith/Cup of Tea," and other reels, jigs, polkas & slides. CD contains all 40 sets. Each part of the tune is played twice, the first time close to the written music, the second time varies. The entire tune is played only once and then transitions to the next tune. With Sheila Gary on fiddle and Brid Cranitch on piano. 48 pp.
