Containing colourful instrumental backing tracks and full demonstrations, the new audio resource will aid and inspire your private practice and public performance alike. These generous collections of authentic music, some familiar, some more exotic, but all of it faithfully arranged, enable you to create your own ceilidh, bluegrass club or charanga band.The violin edition includes optional easy violin part and guitar chords, whilst the complete edition also includes both keyboard and violin accompaniments. Either format is highly flexible, which means the music can be played as solos, duets or trios as well as with larger ensembles.Edwards Huws Jones has travelled extensively researching fiddle-playing traditions. In each book he explains the background of the particular musical style, giving his own suggestions for a lively performance.


"What a fabulous publication! I wanted something for the children to play at our village fete, as the theme was the wild west, but they are all at different levels. The eldest has just got a distinction at grade 7 violin yet was challenged by the harder accompaniments in numbers such as Cotton Patch Rag. My younger daughter is grade 4 and thoroughly enjoyed hopping between the easy violin and melody parts depending on the speed and complexity of the various pieces, and my son, who has yet to take any grades was able to take a full part in the proceedings by playing the easy violin on those numbers he felt confident in. I was even able to persuade my wife to accompany them on her guitar using the chords supplied in the book. I can't wait to find out what the theme of next year's fete is!"
