Over the past few years, I have collected many tunes, mostly English and French, from a number of wonderful players. This website is a constantly evolving 21st century manuscript in the spirit of the great tune books of the past. If you happen to know the composer of a specific tune, please let me know, so that they can be credited. In the event of anyone being unhappy about their own music being shared in this way, I will, of course, remove relevant items. I hope you enjoy playing them!
I play fiddle, viola and English concertina. At the moment, I am in two groups: Boldwood with Becky Price (accordion) and Miranda Rutter (fiddle/viola), playing English music from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries; and Les Souris Dansent with Daniel Wolverson (fiddle/viola) and Kate Moran (fiddle/viola), playing a mixture of French and newly composed tunes for French bals. Many of the tunes we play are included on this site.
