The music contained in this book represents many of the classics of Scottish piping as interpreted within the Cape Breton fiddle tradition.

This book is the result of an intense scrutiny of older collections of pipe music as well as recordings of master players.

Many feel that having a repertoire of pipe tunes is an essential component of the groundwork required to develop a traditional Cape Breton sound.

Pipers will also find this book valuable as it contains solid settings of carefully chosen tunes, arranged within the range of the pipes, to which they can easily add their own grace notes and embellishments.

Samples of tunes from the book. complete with chords and footnotes.
