Although Josephine Keegan is perhaps better known as the piano player on Belfast fiddler Sean McGuire's early albums, she is an excellent fiddle player in her own right and the composer of great tunes, many of which have made their way into the tradition and have been recorded by prominent players and bands--for instance "The Curlews" on Altan's "Horse with a Heart." This brand new tunebook presents 80 of Keegan's compositions (plus a few other tunes) in a handsome volume with color illustrations and notes on the tunes. There is an introductory biographical section with old photographs. A 2-CD set, "Lifeswork" (sold separately), contains all of Keegan's compositions, recorded by herself and musician friends.

Paperback, 125pp., disc.
