I am trying to expand my repertoire & I am thinking about acquiring perhaps a tune-book.



Are there any music books out there catered to uilleann pipers? If so have you tried them, and which one(s) would you recommend?






Thanks...

Joe Doyle's book, Music for the Iirsh Pipes will be the best fit for you, I think. :thumbsup:

One of my favorites is the "Collection of Pipe-friendly Tunes", published by the Seattle Uilleann Pipers Club. The problem is, they are notoriously difficult to communicate with and obtain a copy. Here is their web site: http://irishpipersclub.org/

There is a booklet called "the Camden Breeze" formerly available through the London Uilleann Pipers' Club - has a lot of decent tunes and variations if you can get your hands on a copy.

I got the John Doyle book at Christmas and its definitely worth getting.
I very much doubt you'll regret buying it.

Edwin Spring (who produced the booklets Camden Breeze and Camden Breeze Supplement) kindly gave London UP club permission to reprint copies for club members. To obtain a copy it should be possible to contact Edwin via SWAUP http://www.swaup.org/. Nice books, hand written. A5 format can prove tricky to follow for those with poor eyesight. Edwin was working on a project to make them A4 best contact him to see what he has.
