This new book by Charlie Gore, one of the best-known and respected personalities of the Scottish fiddle scene, contains a wealth of information, opinion and music, and is essential reading for all with an interest in the Scottish national music.

Compiler of the monumental Scottish Fiddle Music Index, Charlie is also a player, composer, adjudicator, lecturer and contributor of articles.

Part 1 of the book is an extended essay, generously illustrated, on the tradition - where does it come from and where is it going? It traces the history of Scottish fiddle music and comments on its present state.

Part 2 is an informative listing of Composers, Collectors, Publishers and others.

Part 3 consists of 18 pages of music from the late 18th to the early 20th centuries.

Charlie lists many of the key composers, editors and collectors, with brief biogs and 72 tunes.

The foreword is by Scottish fiddle maestro Douglas Lawrence.

Paperback 70 pages.
