Press Reviews

"The presentation is excellent and the accompaniments satisfying. Some of the tunes (which can all be played in first position) are old favourites..."
Music Teacher, February 1993

"Traditional fiddle music, clearly set out and well-presented with interesting illustrations, these are fun pieces in simple keys, good for the development of nimble left hand and right hand with some delightful Scotch Snaps in the Strathspeys."
E.S.T.A., Winter 1992

"Irresistable fun"
Cambridge University Press, 1993
