Fiona Driver's Orkney Tune Book (book)

This book contains 100 modern Orkney tunes by 30 composers, highlighting some of the newer tunes emerging from the Orkney Islands. As well as 70 tunes by Fiona Driver, this attractive book contains 30 tunes (and one song) by other well known Orkney musicians such as Douglas Montgomery, Gavin Firth, Brian Cromarty, Jeana Leslie, Catriona Price and Louise Bichan.

Spiral bound so that it sits nicely on a music stand, this book is suitable for many melody instruments and features stories about the tunes, along with interesting photographs, drawings and even a Haiku! 22 of the tunes in this book can be found on Fiona's “Orkney Fire” album, and a further 8 are featured on her “Orkney Fiddler” album.
