Includes forty-seven tunes from Ireland, Scotland, the Shetland Isles, and Canada in duet arrangements, all chosen with cellists in mind and in a variety of styles including jigs, slip jigs, reels, strathspeys, planxtys and airs in traditional keys. Performing in the groove is so important for string players that the American String Teachers Association recognizes this skill as a separate category in their Alternative String Style Awards.
