Manx Traditional Music for Sessions is mainly aimed at musicians who want to play Manx traditional music in sessions, whether in the Island or elsewhere. It contains 60 tunes, mostly dance tunes in sets, with a few airs. The book is not just a tunebook. As well as the tunes, the book gives a detailed background of Manx traditional music and dance, where it has come from, how it has developed and how it is structured, plus discussions on the nature of traditional music and music sessions.
