New Irish Tunes

This page contains links to sheet music and recordings of my original compositions using traditional Irish music forms like reels and jigs. Some of these use rhythms/time signatures not usual for Irish music. Trad musicians of old called such music ‘Crooked Tunes’.  I’ve created dozens of ‘crooked’ tunes. The album ‘A Curious Compendium of Crooked Irish Tunes’ contains a selection of these in new arrangements.
