Price £9.95

Within this compilation is a selection of compositions in the mode of Scottish Traditional Music, suitable for piano accordion, button key accordion, violin etc. They have been composed over a period of time and I hope they give the same pleasure to whosoever plays them as I have had in their creation.

Chords and bass notes for each tune are arranged by myself, but can be altered by the player(s) if they feel that the music can be harmonically improved.

It is my sincere wish that the tunes within will give pleasure to those who are inclined to give them a go.

Graham Barbour.
