French Fiddler, The - Huws Jones, ed.




Another addition to the best-selling Fiddler series takes a leisurely and meandering journey through France, starting in Gascony, wandering east to Tarn & on towards Provence. It then heads north via the Auvergne & Limousin, through Berry & Morvan to Alsace, and after a detour to Paris the tour concludes in Brittany. The book features flexible arrangements for violin & piano with optional easy violin, violin accompaniment, + chord symbols. Each regional group of pieces is designed so that it can be played as a set for concert performance or, in some cases, dancing. Another attractive feature is the inclusion of photos of the performers and dancers Edward Huws Jones observed whilst researching the book.
