Robert Burns (1759-1796) was a Scottish master poet and song writer as well as a great collector of tunes and words.
This book of fiddle duets (and trios) gives musicians the opportunity to play solo or together with singers and accompanied by guitar or piano. On the CD each tune is played twice. The second time only fiddle one plays so that the harmony can be played as accompaniment to make your own duet.
Burns played the fiddle had a great love of fiddle melodies and the airs he used for his poems were often the popular instrumental tunes of his day, though he did use tunes from older collections and often turned to the compositions of Neil Gow. With the rise in popularity of Burns Suppers, this book is a great resource of good arrangements.
