This page shows the tunes we are currently playing at the Slow and Steady session on Wednesday evenings at 8.15pm.     As new tunes are taught, new sets are added.  Recordings, sheet music and other aids to learning are available on the A-Z Tunes page of around 700 tunes.   

 

During the session each group member chooses the tune or tune set to play. All participants are then muted and everyone plays along with the solo fiddle or with a recording by the Perfect Cure Ceili Band.   The tunes are slowed down to a very steady pace so all group members get to play along.

Access recordings and visual aids for these tunes on the "A-Z Tunes Resource of Recordings and Visual Aids" by going to the link in the contents column on the left. 

Join a class to learn more tunes and develop rhythm and phrasing.   

This group will suit players who come to classes on Wednesday evenings, Thursday mornings and complete beginners from Thursday at 7pm are encouraged to come along and join in with the tunes they already know.

There are special recordings with solo fiddle and solo fiddle with guitar on the A-Z index specifically for beginners to join in and play.  They are accessed via this symbol on that page:
