I had the great honor of collaborating with renowned Scottish Highland fiddler Aonghas Grant, fiddler Barbara McOwen and ethnomusicologist Peggy Duesenberry on the two-volume Glengarry Collection: The Highland Fiddle Music of Aonghas Grant. The collection focuses on the core of Aonghas’ music: Highland fiddling, and its connections to pipe tunes and Gaelic songs. There are also a number of tunes composed by Aonghas or in his honour. In total, the books contain 352 slow airs, marches, strathspeys, reels, jigs and hornpipes, with accompanying stories, history and photographs. Transcriptions of bowings and grace notes provide insight into Aonghas’ playing style. The accompanying DVDs include recordings of Grant’s impromptu and passionate performances of 142 of the tunes. Both Volume 1 and Volume 2 are available online from Mel Bay. For more about Aonghas Grant, see his website.
