Here is my book of tunes by the Irish master composer Turlough O'Carolan. 20 tunes, each played note for note on the accompanying CD with a full band.
O'Carolan was a blind travelling Harper who composed tunes for wealthy patrons in Ireland during the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The tunes I've selected for this book translate well to the Banjo and are ideal for those Banjo players who are looking to venture outside of 'traditional' Bluegrass boundaries and expand their repertoire to include some unique and beautiful Irish music.

This book/CD project has taken me over two years to complete and I'm really pleased with the result. Every Banjo picker should have a copy of this book, (of course I would say that wouldn't I!) but these fine tunes will definately add a nice 'change of pace' to the usual Bluegrass repertoire and enrich the material performed by Celtic Banjo pickers and accoustic instrument (or even electric) Folk bands.
I have presented O'Carolan's melodies in this collection for Banjo in a straight forward manner and without adding too many traditional Irish 'flourishes'. I think that this approach, together with the chordal structures and the instruments used for the recordings give them a more contemporary sound which, to my ears any way, really suits the music. Many of the tunes have not been available arranged for the 5 String before.
Please click the 'more info URL' link to see and hear me, my mates and my trusty 1987 Gibson Earl Scruggs recording two of the CD Tracks 'Fanny Power' and 'Morgan Magan'.

To order just send me an email to ronh2510@yahoo.com and I'll get Paypal to send you an invoice. (if you're not in the UK just let me know what country you're in and I'll arrange the invoice in your local currency)
