TUNE BOOK – MELODY LAB – CD Album OUT NOW.
SIMON BRADLEY – Buncrana to Baleshare – Tune Book
The tunes in this book are all inspired by the many sessions and ceilidhs I have taken part in over the years in Scotland, Ireland, Asturias and Manchester. I have adhered to the structures and templates set out by this repertoire and added my own melodic ideas. The intention is that they can all stand up to a solo rendition and slip naturally into the session and ceilidh settings. Ornamentation and variations are left to the player’s own discretion. I hope you enjoy them!
There is also a selection of Simon’s father Pearse Bradley’s poems which are very much rooted in his native Donegal in Ireland. The beautiful painting on the cover of the book is also ‘penned’ by Pearse.
Please visit Simon’s site to buy his book.
