From Apples in Winter to The Wise Maid, this collection of Irish jigs, reels, and polkas provides beginning to advanced players with a wealth of traditional Irish music for solo keyboard accordion. This collection includes a number of tunes transcribed from recordings of not only the keyboard accordion, but also the Irish button box and concertina. Herein too are many of the author's own arrangements.

Some of the stellar players whose work appears here are: Jimmy Keane, Phil Cunningham, Alan Kelly, Joe Burke, Jackie Daly, Tom Doherty, Chris Sherburn, Sharon Shannon, and Tony MacMahon. With a basic guide to fingering and rhythm chord symbols included, this book will allow even the novice accordionist to join in a traditional Irish session. The enclosed CD features the author's performance of medleys including 21 of the book's 100 selections.
