SlowPlayers Music List

Here is a list of tunes that we currently have in our music book, at this time we by no means play them all, but it does give us something to shoot for.

One thing to note: Seisiún tunes seem to have some 'locality' about them.  This list is a basic overview of the many tunes played in the greater San Francisco
area, with additions from Boston.

We offer the files in several different formats; midi, pdf, abc, and gif. The midi may be heard by clicking on the tune title, and the gif may be viewed by selecting 'gif' in the download column for that title. The pdf and abc files are the complete listings for the group (reels, jigs, etc), and may be quite large.  MP3 files may be offered at a later date.

This list is currently undergoing an update.  Please be patient, and it will be completed soon.
