I am selling my 4-CD set, “300 Gems of Irish Music for All Instruments,” for only $5.99 USD. See https://greylarsen.c...r-set-of-4-cds/. This price is good through March 31st, 2018.
All six of my Irish music books and most of my CDs are also heavily discounted throughout March. For all the info, go to: https://greylarsen.com/webstore/st-patricks-month-sale/.
This audio collection is a companion to my book “300 Gems of Irish Music for All Instruments.” (See https://greylarsen.com/shop/product/300-gems-of-irish-music-for-all-instruments/). All 300 tunes are notated in the book. Free excerpts are available as PDF downloads (at http://greylarsen.com/webstore/books/). (Scroll down a bit to find the excerpts.) Many of the transcriptions pay homage to recordings by great musicians and groups such as Matt Molloy, Martin Hayes, Sharon Shannon, Mary Bergin, Kevin Burke, James Kelly, Willie Clancy, Altan, the Bothy Band and the Mulcahy Family, as well as early 20th century recordings from revered masters Michael Coleman, Paddy Killoran, Dennis Murphy, Bobby Casey, Paddy Canny and others. The tunes are notated in a style that makes them equally accessible to players of fiddle, flute, whistle, accordion, concertina, harp, keyboard, guitar, mandolin, banjo, uilleann pipes – to all melody players.
I play the tunes on Irish flute, tin whistle, and 49 of the tunes on my Wheatstone 12-sided anglo concertina from the 1930s. (See photo below.) This is an excellent resource for repertoire building and makes a nice gift. Also, I designed the tune sequence such that good medleys result when you play consecutive tunes one after another. (At least I think so.)
To buy only the 49 concertina tunes, go here: https://greylarsen.c...ll-instruments/
For $9.99, you can get the entire collection as 300 downloadable mp3s, and save shipping costs. This costs less than getting the CDs if you are in Canada, Mexico or outside of North America. The mp3s can be found here: https://greylarsen.c...r-set-of-4-cds/. Choose “MP3s” from the drop-down menu.
The CD set is so inexpensive because I have piles of them on my shelves! Time to move them out into the world. I make no profit at this price, but I have the pleasure of spreading the music around.
Thank you for your attention! - Grey
