Sadly this collection is still sold out, as a second, revised edition is overdue. In the meantime, please visit the “Appalachian/Old-Time” category in the Individual Tunes section of this website. There you will find numerous tunes from the collection (and some newly adapted Appalachian tunes) available for purchase as individual, downloadable PDFs. (A few tunes are offered for free.)
A printed collection of over 60 traditional tunes from the mountainous Southeastern U.S., including music featured on ‘The Piper in the Holler‘. The book includes melodies from ballads, songs, breakdowns, marches, gospel hymns and shape-note hymns. This music is closely linked to the traditions of Scotland, Ireland, and England, as most early settlers to the region emigrated from the British Isles (in particular the ‘Scots-Irish’ or ‘Ulster Scots’).
