The Fiddle Club is an educational series of books and recording each featuring a unique collection of traditional and original folk tunes. It provides a valuable resource of fiddle tunes for anyone interested in this style of music. The authors, music instructors, included various markings (bar numbers, fingerings, and bowings) which are helpful in teaching, especially in group situations. Several of the tunes in this first collection include parts for two violins. The tunes in this book have been recorded by the Calgary Fiddlers and are available on CD. In the recording, the tunes have been grouped into medleys which follow the order of the book. For those individuals who would like to perform this material, a piano and guitar accompaniment edition is available for each collection.
