Tassie Tattie Howkers

Possums on the Roof

Quantity:     CD Price  $10
CSC106 cd

The CD was recorded to highlight the tunes of the late Tasmanian fiddler Angus Cameron. They are organised into sets suitable for dancing yet the music retains a life that makes for enjoyable listening.
The Tassie Tats include fiddlers Angus Cameron, Leueen Morgan and Beth Sowter, piano accordion player Iain MacLeod, mandolin and English concertina player Mike Watts and fretless bass player Daniel Brauchlie.
A book of the dance tunes on this CD is also available. A River of Whisky contains dances suitable for the CD and a further 51 tunes composed by Angus.

A River of Whisky
Tunes and dances popular in Northern Tasmania
This book contains all the tunes played on the CD Possums on the Roof plus a further 51 tunes written by Angus Cameron. Angus and Betty Cameron moved from Scotland to Tasmania over 50 years ago. They brought with them a rich tradition of Scottish dance and music which they adapted for the Northern Tasmanian Bush Dances with Betty calling and Angus playing the fiddle and piano accordion. Angus remembered many tunes played by his family in his native Ayreshire.
Angus regularly composed tunes. Many of these were lost as he doesn't read music. As locals started playing his tunes they gradually began to be written down.
His tunes are now being played by the Tassie Tattie Howkers and a CD is available. This book also contains instruction for the 10 dances taken from the CD.
Book size A4, contains over 200 tunes, chords and history.

Begged, Borrowed and Stolen Book Cover Begged Borrowed and Stolen Begged Borrowed and Stolen CD

  For years Begged Borrowed and Stolen has been the most commonly used music book in Australia for session tunes. This book is recommended as the starting point for musicians new to Celtic music.

  It is now available on 3 CDs to assist with the learning of tunes. Each tune in the Book is played twice at about three quarter pace. Ear players will benefit from the clarity of the recording in picking out the tunes while those able to read music will be able to play along with the musicians to assist with rhythm and timing.
The recordings come in a sleeve that can be fixed to the inside of the book. Included is a list of chord and melody variations.

  This fourth CD has been added to the very popular series by requests as players have been wanting to hear the tunes played at dance speed. Ian McLeod, Leueen Morgan and Mike Watts have been joined by Luke Plumb of Shooglenifty, Tim Gleeson, Music Under the Mountains tutors Patrick Lyons, Nicola Fortune, Tasmanian fiddler Angus Cameron and a number of happy talented students from the School.
The Sets can be used for dances and a list of suitable dances has been provided for each track.
You may purchase the CD separately or with the kits above. It is designed to go into the spare CD holder with the other three CDs originally recorded.
Contents

We are now offering all 4 CDs for the price of three.

The Rumblin' Brig
By Hamish Moore
A collection of tunes for pipes and other instruments, including suggested chordal accompaniment. Half of the tunes were written by Hamish, the pipe-maker extraordinaire from Dunkeld, with several written by Dick Lee and available on the CD The Bee's Knees. The remaining come from old manuscripts and the melodies are particularly good for dance music. The pipes, both Highland and Lowland played a big role in providing music for dance, especially reels, which were played across Scotland prior to the introduction of country dances from England and Europe
Size A4, includes music, some chords
