“It is a good mixture, equally useful for young musicians who are building their knowledge of tunes as for more experienced musicians who might like to be reminded of tunes temporarily mislaid in the memory.”

By John Moar - Orkney View Magazine

“I would recommend the book as a good grounding in all of the main styles of Scottish traditional dance music.”
