Tunes for Fiddlers

in

..from a fiddler about Roy's new "Tunes for fiddlers"

I really enjoy Roy’s rendition of Dogheda Lasses and Ballintore Fancy. The recording is perfect for learning. ...we have had some fun playing those tunes at local sessions..... So Roy, I hope that you can make more of your recordings available for us to learn.
