French Fiddle Tunes

Renowned fiddle player and arranger Chris Haigh presents this fantastic survey of French fiddle music, with over 200 pieces exploring the variety of traditional fiddle music found throughout the country.

France is perhaps not as famous for fiddle music as Ireland, Scotland or Romania is, but scratch below the surface and you will find a rich tradition packed with unique dance forms, crooked tune structures, unusual and exotic modes, and non-tempered scales.


FRENCH FIDDLE TUNES - press reviews:

"The remarkable Chris Haigh presents 227 traditional tunes from throughout France... Explore the fiddling regions of France in this beautifully presented book with our 'latter-day Bartók' collector of folk tunes."

This fantastic collection also includes live recordings of each piece played by Chris Haigh.
