There is literally no English country dance musician in North America who hasn't used this book as a source! The Barnes Book is the primary source for most traditional English tunes in modern usage, including Playford and "barn dance" styles.  This revised edition contains over 400 traditional melodies, with chords for optional accompaniment, cross-references, and indexes.  Edited and arranged by Peter Barnes.  Published by Canis Publishing.  Spiral bound, 178 pages.

NOTE: The melodies presented can be played by any C instrument, including violin/fiddle, flute, etc.  For more tunes, see Volume 2 (item 0209 257).

My students want to learn English Country Dance Music, and I discovered this is the book series musicians use. I was happy to be able to order it from Shar at a nice price. It gives chords, unlike some online resources. It doesn't contain bowings, so I'll have to learn the proper styles from recordings and other players.
