Ceol Duibhneach (Book & 2 CD’s)

Ceol Duibhneach is more than your average music tutor. It roots the 54 tunes presented in the book firmly in the community where they were played and with the musicians who played them.
A sense of Place…
It is about identity and community and particularly, a sense of place. It describes the generation of musicians who passed the music on to the current players.
